Updated 1 year ago

The FBI and the Maine Warden Service are now involved in the search for a missing teenager from Glenburn. 15-year-old Nichole Cable was last seen outside her house on Route 221 Sunday night. At a news conference Wednesday, Chief Deputy Troy Morton with the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Department said they’re using all resources necessary to find Nichole, including the FBI and game wardens. Morton also said wardens have started a ground search to try to locate her. Deputies still consider this a missing person case and will not say if Nichole’s disappearance is suspicious or if she is in danger, but they want to hear from anyone who has information about her whereabouts.Her mother, Kristine Willey, made a plea to the public to help find her daughter, saying if she’s runaway or out there on her own to please come home. And if someone knows where Nichole is, to come forward and share that information. Tuesday afternoon Willey talked to TV5 about the last time she saw Nichole saying, “She went to the driveway, in my drive way, to meet a friend, and it turned out to be something different then what she said. It was someone that she didn’t know that she met on Facebook.”Nichole is a student at Old Town High School.The superintendent says the school is cooperating with authorities in providing information about Nichole and offering counseling services to students. Tuesday evening, Morton said, “Her parents immediately reported this to us once they knew that she was missing. And, the sheriff’s office, responded to that complaint, and we’ve continued to do investigations. We are using outside resources such as internet and phone capabilities to attempt to locate her. We’ve been unsuccessful at this time, both through friends and family.”Morton is encouraging people on the internet and in the community to continue to share pictures of Nichole to raise awareness about her. Anyone with information can contact the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Department at 947-4585.Nichole’s information has been added to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children website. http://www.missingkids.com/home
