BANGOR, Maine (AP) — State police in Maine say a body found in the woods likely is that of a 15-year-old girl last seen more than a week ago.
Spokesman Steve McCausland says the body was found at about 9:30 p.m. Monday by the Maine Warden Service in an undisclosed wooded location. Recovery will begin at daylight Tuesday.
McCausland says the state medical examiner's office will determine if the remains are those of Nichole Cable, of Glenburn. The girl's parents have been notified.
Cable's mother says her daughter was last seen on May 12 when she went out to see someone she'd met online. Her mother didn't know who that person was. Maine law enforcement officials and hundreds of volunteers have been searching for her.
