BALTIMORE — Police say a 19-year-old woman who went missing in Baltimore yesterday has been located.

Authorities were notified of a missing hiker in the area of Harris Road at around 7:00 p.m.

Troopers responded and spoke with the complainant, Tyler Wakefield.

Wakefield told police that he and Alexis Newsome entered the woods from the area of Harris Road at around 7:00 p.m.

He told police that he and Newsome were hunting and separated in the woods so she could “push” deer his way, however after not seeing or hearing from her after about 45 minutes he returned to their car as they originally planned.

After waiting a period of time and not contacting her, Wakefield reported her missing to police.

Troopers, Vermont Fish and Game, and Springfield Fire responded to the area and are actively coordinating a search of the area.

Newsome was able to walk out of the woods under her own power and was subsequently transported to the medical center to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.
