52 year old female with a history of mental heath issues was reported lost.  She was believed to have left her home on foot and during limited 911 discussions she reported that she was in a drainage with water.  Stowe Mountain Rescue was tasked with searching two drainage, but were unsuccessful.  Stowe Mountain Rescue was then reassigned to search ATV/snowmobile trails, which was also unsuccessful.  At that point, a dog team w/New England K-9 located the subject in a drainage off Gauthier Dr.

The subject was not able to walk out under their own power, so Stowe Mountain Rescue and Colchester Technical Rescue formed a litter evacuation team, and delivered the subject to Essex Rescue.
