Police in Maine are asking for the public’s help in locating a family that did not return from a planned camping trip last week.
The Sanford Police Department said Jill Sidebotham, Lydia Hansen and Nicholas Hansen were last seen driving a 2005 Volkswagen Jetta with a black rear bumper and a Maine license plate (1563VJ).
“They could be camping in the Phillips area,” police said Sunday. “They should have returned to the area [last] Thursday, but friends and family have not heard from them. They were in the Rumford area [last] Wednesday.”
Sidebotham’s family told NewsCenter Maine that the disappearance was not normal behavior for her. The family told the station that Sidebotham was with her two-year-old daughter, Lydia, and described Nathan Hansen as her ex-boyfriend.
“We’re very scared right now,” said Sidebotham’s father, Ron Sidebotham. “Not knowing is almost as bad as having something bad happen. Not knowing is just eating and eating.”
In a Facebook post, Sidebotham said his 28-year-old daughter’s phone had been inactive since June 28 and was last seen in Mexico, Maine, on July 1.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Sanford Police at 207-324-9170.
