Crews search for missing Proctor woman

PROCTOR, Vt. -

Authorities in Rutland County are investigating the disappearance of woman.

Police mobilized a search for Maryann Foster, 59, in Proctor Thursday. Multiple agencies and helicopters were called in to look for her.

At a press conference Thursday afternoon, officials said the bureau of criminal investigation is involved although foul play is not suspected.

Search crews were out Thursday looking for the woman who left home without her car house keys or snow boots. The outlook seemed dismal as search teams went from door to door looking for information about Foster.

Townspeople say she's a quiet woman who doesn't socialize much, other than with her boyfriend, and she used to bartend at a neighborhood pub. Given that she is out in the elements without much, time is of the essence.

"It's been cold and it's wintertime and someone is not at home where should be and they leave and take nothing with them what you normally would and it indicates we should start looking immediately," Rutland County Sheriff Stephen Bernard said.

"If the homeowner gives us permission, we're just asking to look around their property. If they don't give us permission, I'm just looking what I can physically see, just to see if she's there by chance. Haven't seen anything," said Jeff Towers of the Proctor Fire Department.

It was Foster's boyfriend reported her missing after she didn't return.

Foster is described as a white woman with blonde hair, about 5-foot-2-inches tall, 100 pounds. Anyone with information is asked to call the Rutland County Sheriff's Department at 802-775-8002.
