Kristin Westra: Body Found in Search for Missing Maine Teacher
Kristin Westra was last seen Sunday evening.
A body was found Friday in the search for a missing Maine teacher, who disappeared overnight last weekend.
Kristin Westra, 47, was last seen at her home in North Yarmouth Sunday evening, the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office said.
Authorities have not said whether the body, reportedly found in a wooded area a half-mile from the home, is Westra's, but the search for her is suspended, law enforcement officials confirmed.
Westra's husband, Jay, told NBC News earlier this week his wife had gone to see a "licensed clinical nurse practitioner" on Sunday. She was reported missing Monday after she had recently had trouble sleeping.
Jay said he believed his wife left their bed before dawn Monday morning. He said he found their back door slightly open when he awoke around 3:30 a.m. to find Westra gone.
On Friday, Jay posted on social media, “My heart was crushed today.”
Further details were not immediately available.
