Missing Houlton Woman Found Alive
A woman who had been listed 'missing and endangered' by Houlton Police has been found alive.
The BDN reports Cassandra Bell was found at Evergreen Cemetery, just a short distance from her home. A family visiting the cemetery noticed a blue blanket that had been named in the missing persons report, and notified authorities. Bell was found sitting under a tree, in a wooded area, overlooking a gravel pit. She was dehydrated, confused, and lethargic, but otherwise okay, and was taken to a local hospital for evaluation.
Bell has been missing since Sunday night and was listed as 'endangered' because she has a history of self-harm. According to the BDN, the 34-year-old has struggled since her sister was killed in a car accident last year and the death of her father two years ago.
