SULLIVAN, Maine — A man missing since Saturday checked in with his family Wednesday night and is fine, according to the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office.

A Sullivan woman reported at midnight Tuesday that she had not seen or heard from her husband, Herbert Hatch, for more than three days. Hatch, 66, left the house with clothes and medication at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17, but never returned.

The sheriff’s office alerted other law enforcement agencies to be on the lookout for Hatch’s silver 2005 Chevy pickup truck and asked the public for help finding the missing man.

Though he declined to go into detail, Lt. Tim Cote of the sheriff’s office said Hatch was accounted for after calling his son, who does not live with the distressed wife, on Wednesday night.

“At this point, we can tell you he talked to his son and he was fine,” Cote said Wednesday.
