MAYNARD — Chief Michael Noble reports that the Maynard Police Department is seeking the public’s help in locating a woman believed missing since yesterday afternoon.
Police encountered Thorndike at approximately 3:45 p.m. yesterday when she asked an officer for directions to an address in Plymouth. Later, the officer checked with the location Thorndike had sought directions to in order to confirm that she had arrived safely and learned that she had not.
As a result of a preliminary investigation, Maynard Police determined that Thorndike had recently moved to Maynard from Plymouth, and that she suffers from memory impairment. Her whereabouts are currently unknown, and police issued a silver alert yesterday in an effort to safely locate her.
Thorndike was driving a gray Honda Accord with registration PL401. She may be heading in the direction of Plymouth. Anyone who believes they may have located Thorndike is asked to call Maynard Police at 978-897-1011 or call 911.
