BREAKING: Wardens find Ruth Brennan, missing since Monday

WATERFORD (WGME) -- The Maine Warden Service and dozens of volunteers will conduct an extensive search today for Ruth Brennan, 77, missing since Monday.

Brennan, who is from South Portland, was last seen going for a walk in Waterford, where she is vacationing with her family.

Crews will conduct what's called a grid search.  This is means they will go out standing just feet apart from each other and search the ground at their feet.  Wardens spent the last two days using dogs, horses, ATVs and even helicopters to search for Brennan.

Lt. Adam Gormely said Brennan's family is staying strong.  "They are holding up pretty good, still hopeful, as we are.  Optimistic, concerned, as any family member would be.  We're really trying to work with them and they've been super."

Lt. Gormely said Wardens have received a number of sightings of Brennan.  They will focus today on those tips. "This morning we're going to concentrate on two areas that we had some eye witnesses for, and really try to focus on that and find areas where she may be down or still waiting to be rescued," said Lt. Gormely.
