Original Story

Police are searching for a Buckfield teen who has been missing since March 29.

Hannah Thomas, 14, was reported missing from her home by her mother, who she lives with, a news release from the Oxford County Sheriff's Office said Friday.

Thomas is not known to have a cell phone with her, according to the release.

Police said Thomas "frequently has run away and has been located in the Lewiston/Auburn area after several days by friends and/or family members," and that at this time, she is considered an "at-risk juvenile."

Thomas previously went missing in November 2022. She was located several days later in South Carolina. Officials said at the time that she was taken into protective custody and her family would coordinate with law enforcement for her return to Maine.

She is described as 5 feet, 7 inches tall, 125 pounds, and was last seen wearing black sneakers, black leggings, and a gray hooded sweatshirt.

Police ask anyone who may have information about Thomas' whereabouts, or has contact with her, to notify their local police department and/or the Oxford County Sheriff's Office by calling 207-743-9554.
