LITCHFIELD, Maine (AP) — Police say a woman who texted authorities to say she'd been kidnapped has been found safe.

The Kennebec Journal reports that state police officers followed pings from the cell phone to a Litchfield home on Tuesday afternoon.

Officers made contact with the woman around 3 p.m. and said there was no kidnapping. But police were still looking for the man who may be involved in the incident.

Aircraft and drone flyover assisted Maine State Police in their search for the woman.

State Police Lt. Pat Hood said police were trying to determine if a crime was committed.
