Maine Game Wardens Locate Missing Children

Game Wardens Find Missing Children January 23, 2006

Palermo, Maine -- Game Warden Pilot Charlie Later located two missing toddlers early Saturday morning after they had been abandoned in the woods off the Chisolm Pond Road in Palermo.

The young girls, ages 16 months and nearly three years old, spent the night in the woods and were located by Warden Later as they were lying next to a stonewall in the woods. Volunteer searcher Billy-Jo Sherman was the first to reach the pair.

The two girls had mild frostbite on their fingers, noses and toes, and were also hypothermic. They were treated on the scene by emergency medical personnel and transported to Maine General Hospital in Augusta.

The girls parents, Sean, 24, and Kristie Anderson, 25, of Albion are suspects in a two burglaries in the area. The Andersons fled into the woods with their children on Friday afternoon in an attempt to evade police. Sean Anderson came out of the woods alone later that afternoon, and did not know where his wife and children were.

Game Wardens, police, search and rescue dogs, and volunteers searched the area, and continued through the night in an effort to find the mom and two children. Kristie Anderson was located and rescued at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, but her children were not with her. One hour later, the girls were found about a mile from where the mom was found.

Sean Anderson was arrested on Friday night and charged with two counts of burglary. Kristie Anderson was taken to a hospital in Belfast and has not yet been charged.

More charges against the Andersons could follow.
