Husband of missing Fairfield woman speaks out

FAIRFIELD, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — She hasn't been seen in more than two weeks, and now, her husband is speaking out for the first time.

Valerie Tieman has been missing since Aug. 30. State police say she was last seen in the parking lot of the Wal-Mart in Skowhegan.

Her husband, Luc, said he went into the store, and when he came out, his wife was gone from their truck. He said for her to be missing this long without making contact is not like her at all — he just wants her found safely.

"Just want her to come out, not be scared," he told NEWS CENTER on Monday. "No one's going to get hurt or cares what she's done."

Luc Tieman said the two were on good terms, but said she did mention some things a couple days before she went missing that made him worry, including her talking about another man.

The day she went missing, Luc said his wife told him she was going to leave and never come back.

He said he didn't call police right away because he thought she would either go to her parents in South Carolina or come back home. When he called to check in with them about her, they told him she had not been in contact.

Valerie Tieman's parents made the call to police before Luc was able to.

He says at this point they don't have any leads.
