     – Trooper Curtin began investigating a shoplifting complaint from Coffin’s General Store in Portage. The owner had a plate number and name of the offender.

     – A woman from Biddeford called the State Police reporting her mother, age 77 who has dementia, left a camp they were staying at in Monticello sometime in the night, in a Toyota Highlander. The woman stated her mother believes she is still in the area and may be trying to drive home. Cpl. Quint took all of the woman’s information and asked the dispatcher to put the information into the State computer system alerting all law enforcement agencies of the missing woman. A couple hours later a Lincoln Police Officer was called to the local Wal-Mart for a woman who was acting confused. The officer spoke with the woman and when he saw what she was driving for a vehicle knew it was the woman listed in the teletype. Arrangements were made for the officer to stay with the woman and the family until the family could get to her from Monticello.
