Written by

EASTPORT - Maine State Police are still investigating the mysterious disappearance of a woman who moved to town the year she was last seen by her family.

Marilyn Lehan, 59, and her husband, Brian, moved into a home on Clark Street in 2002.


According to a Maine State Police Facebook post, she was last seen by visiting family members that same year.


Members of Lehan’s family told investigators that it wasn't uncommon for her to go long periods of time without contacting them.


According to previous reports, her husband, who now lives in California, reportedly told family members that she had gone to a Catholic retreat in Montana.


Her family reported her missing to Eastport Police during the summer of 2013.


The 14-acre property where Lehan once lived overlooks Harris Cove and now is owned by somebody else.


State police detectives scoured the area in 2014 looking for clues.


Anyone with information about the disappearance of Lehan can contact Maine State Police – Major Crimes Unit North in Bangor at 973-3750.
