Sarah Rogers: Please Help Find Her!
by Dee Newman
bulletin about Sarah Rogers back in January of this years. She went missing on the morning of December 13, 2009 after leaving her home in Barrington, NH. Her car was found abandoned that same evening on I-95 near Clinton, ME (mile marker 141.5).
This morning the family of Sarah Rogers (her father and mother, her husband, Fritz Coulombe, and their young son) appeared on the NBC Today Show from New York to ask the nation to help find her.
Her family said that Sarah was having a "manic breakdown" before she disappeared from her Barrington home. Bob Rogers, Sarah’s father, said his daughter has bipolar disorder and that she was off her medication. He went on to say, when she does not take her medication she is prone to bouts of paranoia and a tendency to wander.
It has been reported that after leaving Barrington, records show that Sarah drove through the toll plaza in Gardiner, Maine, heading north at 12:56 p.m. She then went through the same toll plaza heading south at 3:57 p.m. and went through heading north again at 5:07 p.m.
Her car was then found between 6:15 and 6:30 p.m. along the side of the road in Clinton, about 35 miles from the toll plaza. When found, the car was still in drive and the engine was running.
Police have searched the area around her car but found few clues. Along with the footprints, Rogers said his daughter's large purse was found in the snow 15 to 20 feet from the vehicle, but a smaller purse containing her identification was not found.
She reportedly left her home wearing only shorts, a tank top and a "spring-type jacket."
Though just a theory, police have said it is possible Sarah Rogers hitched a ride with someone heading south on Interstate 95.
If you have any information, please call: Barrington Police (603) 664-2700, the Maine State Police (800) 452-664 or your local police.
