Skowhegan police said Thursday morning that an area woman who has been missing since late May or early June might have been spotted at a homeless shelter in Bangor.

Tina Stadig, 40, reportedly was seen July 10 at the Bangor Area Homeless Shelter by a case manager at the shelter, according to Skowhegan police Chief David Bucknam.

“Tina gave a false name of Jen and is known to use the name Tammy Stadig, her twin sister,” Bucknam said Thursday morning. “It is believed she is in the area waiting for a space to open.”

Skowhegan Detective Katelyn Nichols is in contact with Bangor police, bringing them up to date on the missing-person alert that Skowhegan police posted on Tuesday.

Stadig was seen last by law enforcement on May 25. Her friends and family last saw her on May 28.

Donna Almeida said in a Facebook message to the newspaper that Tina Stadig is her daughter and that she suffers from mental illness.

“We are really worried about her because she has severe mental illness and has been thinking there are people out to kill her,” Almeida wrote. “She does have warrants for her and I know the cops are thinking she’s probably just hiding out, but we do not believe that. She has not called any of her family members or her friend that she lived with since June.”

Tina is white, with brown hair and hazel eyes. She is about 5 feet, 2 inches tall and weighs around 140 pounds.

Police say Stadig might be carrying a backpack and a trash bag containing her belongings. Tina could be in the areas of Skowhegan, Waterville and Bangor.

Anyone with information on Stadig’s whereabouts is asked to call Skowhegan police at 474-6908 or 474-6386.
