Family 'overjoyed' wardens find woman in Waterford

by Christopher Crosy, Staff Writer Sun Journal July 10, 2014

WATERFORD — A 77-year-old South Portland woman lost in the woods for two days was found alert and smiling Wednesday morning by a rescue dog and his handler.

Ruth Brennan rescued
Rescuers carry Ruth Brennan out of the woods in Waterford after she was found Wednesday morning, July 9.

Searchers discovered Ruth Frances Brennan about a mile and a quarter from where wardens confirmed a sighting of her on Jewett Pond Road at 3 p.m. Monday. She was alert, in good spirits and talking to rescuers before she was escorted from the woods, said Maine Warden Service Lt. Kevin Adam.

After briefly reuniting with family members, she was taken to an unnamed hospital for a precautionary exam.

Brennan was vacationing with her family at a camp on Spur Ridge Road on Middle Pond, and went missing while walking from that camp toward Melby's Market & Eatery on Route 35 in North Waterford.
