An employee at a local fast food restaurant who left to make a bank deposit early in the morning and did not return to work has been found.

The manager reported the worker missing about 8:12 a.m. and told police no one had been able to make contact with her, according to Sgt. Wade Betters, spokesman for the Bangor Police Department.

Brewer police found the employee safe about 11 a.m. in a car in the Walmart parking lot on Wilson Street.

The investigation is ongoing but the restaurant employees may be the victims of an organized scam, he said.

No charges have been filed, and no additional details were available early Sunday afternoon.
