BREAKING: Crime scene tape, heavy police presence near home of missing Maine teacher

On the fifth day of a search for a missing elementary school teacher, a heavy police presence has been reported near the home of Kristin Westra.

The Portland Press Herald reports that police have put up crime scene tape in front of a house about half a mile from Wetra’s in North Yarmouth, Maine.

According to the report, police have not said whether the police activity at the home is related to Westra’s disappearance.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Westra’s husband last saw her before he went to sleep on Sunday night, and when he woke up his wife was gone. She left a wallet and her cell phone behind.

The missing woman is an elementary school teacher with a young daughter and a teenage stepson.

Her husband Jay Westra told NBC News in an interview that Kristin had been experiencing some anxiety on Sunday, and that a nurse practitioner friend came to their home and examined her, finding no need for further evaluation.

Jay Westra appealed to his wife to come home in the NBC News interview.

“Kristin, no matter what, come home,” he said. “There’s nothing — there’s no problem, no embarrassment, no obstacle, that can’t be overcome when you come back.”

“We’ve always taken care of everything, we’ve solved every problem.We’re a team, we will be a team, your daughter loves you, your friends love you, your parents love you, your brother and sister-in-law love you, aunts and uncles, everybody wants you back.”

According to People magazine, authorities do not suspect foul play.
