As temperatures drop, concern is rising for those searching for a missing Suffield woman.
Enfield Police say Odine Frohberg was last seen around 1:30 p.m. Friday, at the Olive Garden Restaurant on Hazard Avenue in Enfield.
According to police, Frohberg, who has cognitive disabilities, was eating with her aide when she got up to visit the restroom and never returned. Police believe she left the restaurant on foot and began walking east, toward Stafford, on Route 190. A Silver Alert was issued.
“We spent the better part of three days making pretty significant efforts to try to find Miss Frohmberg,” said Enfield Police Chief Alaric Fox.
Efforts have included assistance from South Windsor, Vernon and Connecticut State Police, who helped Enfield Police search over 800 acres of property yesterday. Drones and search dogs were used to search the area. K9 tracks took search teams eastbound on Route 190 toward Stafford Springs but found nothing.
“We checked a number of large wooded areas on the off chance they have been where she traveled,” explained Fox.
Frohberg is 5-foot-4, 160 pounds and was last seen wearing a red and orange vertical striped shirt and navy blue pants. The description has been posted on Enfield Police Department’s Facebook page where it has been shared over 1,500 times.
As the investigation continues, police say it has been turned over to the detective division for follow up. The immediate leads though, have been exhausted.
