Circumstance: James Therrien was last seen in Sanford, Maine on August 24, 2010. He shared an apartment with his sister on Thompson Street. He and his sister got into an argument that day. Later, at about 7:30 p.m., as she was watching television, she heard him say “Oh, well,” and then he left. He took his wallet but leaving his medications, house keys and glasses. His sister assumed he was going to the store, and reported him missing at 3:00 a.m. the next day when he hadn’t returned. An acquaintance may have seen James in the Sanford area on August 29, and there was a reported sighting of him in Portland, Maine also, but there’s been no clear indication of his whereabouts since August 2010.

It’s uncharacteristic of James to leave without warning and he has difficulty walking because of his chronic pain. He had applied for disability prior to his disappearance because his medical problems left him unable to work. Although there’s no evidence of foul play in his case, due to the state of his health, there is concern for his well-being. His case remains unsolved.
