ALNA – At approximately 6:00 p.m. last evening, June 27, the Maine Warden Service received a call from Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department requesting assistance with locating Helen Smith from Alna. Smith is believed to have dementia and was overdue for her insulin for diabetes. She was last seen at her residence on Rabbit Path Road at about 1:00 PM yesterday, according to Maine Warden Service spokesperson Corporal John MacDonald.
Thunderstorms and periods of heavy rain were moving through the area. Smith was thought to be wearing only a t-shirt and capris pants. As luck would have it, several members of the Maine Warden Service K9 Team were conducting night training when the call came in. Within an hour, four game warden K9 teams arrived on the scene to assist with locating Smith.
