The Maine Warden Service reported late Friday afternoon, Aug. 5, that the body of a woman reported missing from Hampden two days earlier was discovered in the Penobscot River.

The body of 65-year-old Juliet Kellogg Markowsky was discovered by a recreational boater, according to a press release from the Warden Service. The agency recovered her body Friday afternoon.

The body was located three-and-a-half miles downstream in the Penobscot River, near Winterport, from the point she was last seen, according to the press release.

The Warden Service reported that the search for Markowsky had been underway since she was first reported missing from her home at Avalon Village in Hampden on Wednesday evening, Aug. 3.

Assisting the Maine Warden Service in today’s grid search were the Hampden Police Department, Dirigo Search and Rescue, Maine Search and Rescue Dogs (MESARD), Down East Emergency Medical Institute (DEEMI), and Maine Marine Patrol. All of these groups were assisted by the services of the Salvation Army, according to the Warden Service.

Markowsky’s body is being transported to the Medical Examiner’s office for an autopsy, the press release stated.
