The family and friends of a missing Maine woman who was last seen in Florida two weeks ago say they are growing increasingly concerned about her well being.

They say it’s not like Judith Therianos, 52, to not at least check in with someone close to her, through Facebook or with a phone call.

Therianos, who lives in Alfred, went to Tampa this month to spend time with a friend who has been diagnosed with cancer.

Longtime friend Glenda Cook of Sanford said they spoke by phone on March 11, and that was the last time Cook or anyone saw or spoke with Therianos.

“It’s unlike her to not make contact,” Cook said. “Someone, somewhere must know where she is.”

Cook said she would like to see more effort by Florida police.


Therianos’ sister, Jennifer Scammon of Saco, notified Maine State Police on March 19 that her sister was missing. State police in turn notified Florida authorities, Scammon said.

“I’m extremely concerned,” Scammon said. “We’re waiting patiently like everyone else for any new information.”

Scammon said her younger sister grew up in Maine and graduated from Massabesic High School in 1981.

Cook has established a Facebook page called “Help Find Judi Therianos,” where friends and family can share information.
