Unity College SAR team was alerted by the MASAR duty officer at 3am Sunday morning to assist the Maine Warden's Service in the search for a missing 80 year old female in Brooklin, Maine.
Five college personnel responded. Public Safety officer Chris Miville provided assistance with vehicles, etc. The missing woman was found at first light by authorities. The team returned to UC by 9.20 am.
Although our numbers were low, we did perform our mission of getting to the Search HQ with sufficient trained, fit personnel and equipment, ready to assist the authorities with a search or a rescue.
