MDIFW NEWS: Missing 16-Year-OId Girl Safely Located By Searchers

LIVERMORE FALLS, Maine - Asia Brown, who had been missing since Saturday night, was found safely by searchers a mile from her home this evening.

At approximately 8:00 this evening, Maine Search and Rescue Dogs (MESARD) volunteer Leslie Howe and her K9 Uerly (correct spelling) were searching an area that had been previously searched when they located Asia in a wooded area near a field, just over a mile from her house.
