Fay Johnson, age 62, is still missing. Friends and family are hoping that someone has seen her. On June 16, Lost N Missing, Inc. held events in Scarborough and Bethel to focus attention on the search for Fay. Leaflets with Fay’s picture and information were posted throughout Bethel. Fay was last seen in Bethel on March 7, 2012, at her newly rented home. She was in the process of moving here from Lewiston. Fay is 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs 140-170 pounds and has blonde hair and blue eyes. She has serious medical/mental health conditions and wears a medical alert necklace for her pacemaker. Fay removed her vanity license plates from her own vehicle and they may be mounted on another vehicle. The plate reads “SASSYFJ.” If you see Fay or these license plates, or have any information at all, please call the Maine State Police at 1-800-228-0857, or call 9-1-1 or the local sheriff’s office.
