Brunswick police have resumed searching for a 30-year-old woman who did not return home Monday night after an argument.

A police dispatcher said the search for Lisa Marie Cox resumed Wednesday morning.

The Maine Warden Service has also become involved in the hunt for Cox, who walked away from her home at 30 Running Brook Lane at 10:30 p.m. Monday.

A total of 10 game wardens and canines, as well as six Brunswick police officers and a Maine State Police airplane, searched the Maquoit Road neighborhood on Tuesday, but could not find any clues that might lead them to Cox. Running Brook Lane is located near Brunswick High School and is off Maquoit Road.

WCSH-TV reported that Cox and her boyfriend, who live in Texas, had been staying at a friend’s home in Brunswick for the past two weeks. The last person to see her was her boyfriend, police told the Portland television station. Cox grew up in Brunswick.

“Due to her mental state at the time she left, the temperature being in the 30s and rain last night there is concern for her well-being,” Brunswick police Cmdr. Mark Waltz said Tuesday. Cox also left her cellphone behind, Waltz said.

Police are seeking the public’s help in looking for Cox, who is described as 5 feet 3 inches tall, 168 pounds, with dark blond hair and wearing glasses, a navy blue sweater and a dark blue skirt.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Brunswick Police Department at 725-5521.
