State Police are assisting Middletown Police in the search for a 57-year-old woman who has been missing since mid-July, according to police sources.
Nina Coe has been missing since July 16. She disappeared after returning from a dentist appointment.
Up until that point, Coe had been in constant communication with her three sisters, so they became concerned when two days passed and they could not reach her.
Coe's family has made public pleas, asking for help to find their sister, and held vigils to pray for her safe return.
Police said concerns about Coe's disappearance are mounting because she suffers from alcohol dependency and might need immediate medical attention. According to a Silver Alert issued last month, Coe is also dependent on pain medication and has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
Today, crews are searching the area of Silver Street, Cedar Lane and Reservoir Road and K9s have been brought in.
Coe stands 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighs 130 pounds and has brown hair and blue eyes. Police said she wears glasses and has a tattoo on one leg and a scar on the right side of her neck.
Police are asking anyone with information on Coe's whereabouts to call 860-638-4000.
