A Livermore Falls teenager who was last seen Saturday night has been located, according to a Maine Department of Public Safety spokesperson.
Asia Brown, 16, was located Monday evening and is safe, according to spokeswoman Shannon Moss.
Brown, who has high-functioning autism and needs medication, was located in a wooded area near a field, just over a mile from her home, by a search and rescue dog from the Maine.
Brown was last seen on Saturday, July 30, around 8:30 p.m. at her home on Campground Road in Livermore Falls. Her father discovered that she had disappeared on Sunday morning around 6:30 a.m. At the time of her disappearance, her family and the police did not know what type of clothing she was wearing or in which direction she might be heading.
Following her disappearance, the Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Office issued a Silver Alert for Brown and a thorough search was launched.
Game Warden Lt. Jason Luce told News Center Maine that about 30 people were looking for her on Monday. The crews used 11 K9 units, as well as a drone and a research aircraft.
