A police search of property in Eastport for a woman whose family has not seen her in a decade yielded no information that could shed light on her disappearance.

Marilyn Lehan, 59, lived in Eastport with her husband Brian from 2002 to 2004 and was active in the local church. Her family has not seen her since 2004, although they told police it was not usual for her to go long periods without communicating with them. They reported her missing to Eastport police last summer.

Eastport police has since asked for State Police to assist with the investigation.

Police have spoken with her husband and he has been cooperative, said State Police spokesman Steve McCausland. Brian Lehan moved to California after the Clark Street house was foreclosed on, police said.

Police on Thursday used cadaver dogs to search 14 acres behind the couple’s former home on Clark Street. McCausland said police did not have evidence that Lehan’s remains were there but now can rule that out in their search for her. The dogs searched for eight hours but found no signs of the woman.

Police said they had no plans to return there but may search other areas as new information comes in.

Police released two pictures of Lehan from the 1990s.

Police asked that anyone who had contact with her prior to her disappearance contact Maine State Police Det. Micah Perkins at 1-800-432-7381, or call Eastport Police.
