SKOWHEGAN – The Maine Warden Service and investigators from the Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit joined the search Monday for a Skowhegan man who has been missing since Friday night.

Vaughn Giggey III, 40, of Main Street left his apartment about 10 p.m. Friday to walk to his mother's house on Chamberlain Street, less than two miles away. He never showed up, said his mother, Rosanne Dubay, 58.

State police investigators were called just in case they are needed, Skowhegan Deputy Police Chief Dan Summers said.

Family members said state police investigators impounded Giggey's gold Chevy pickup earlier Monday.

Dubay said she wonders if he was a victim of a crime.

"What stopped him from coming here?" she said Monday. "Was he abducted? Was he mugged? We don't know anything. We don't know what happened. He could be in Portland or out of state right now."

Dubay struggled emotionally with her son's disappearance in a Facebook post. "Lord," she wrote. "Thank you for keeping me together when I am falling apart."

Dubay said her son and his girlfriend, Brandy Remmers, said they were going to have dinner and rent a movie for the night when they visited her after work Friday. "That's the last I heard from him," she said.

Skowhegan Police Chief Ted Blais said Giggey did not show up for work at the New Balance factory Monday.

He said wardens are scheduled to return Tuesday with dogs to conduct a more extensive search of the area. Summers said Warden Josh Bubier met with local detectives Monday to chart a course to search for Giggey.

Cpl. John MacDonald of the Maine Warden Service said wardens are assisting Skowhegan police, which is the primary agency on the investigation.

Giggey is about 6 feet tall, weighs about 170 pounds and has a goatee. Skowhegan police asked that anyone with information call the department at 474-6908 or the regional communications center at 474-6465.
