Woman visiting from Maine goes missing in New Port Richey

- Friends of a woman visiting the Bay Area said they're worried for her safety after she disappeared March 14. Now, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office has joined the search.

Deputies said Judith Therianos and a friend came on February 15, to the Bay Area from Maine, to visit friends. 

During her trip, friends told investigators, she was taken to visit people she knew in Tampa, and then moved on to visit others in New Port Richey.

Then, deputies said, she seemed to disappear, having last been seen March 11.

Judith Therianos is 52-years-old and was described as being 5'1" tall, weighing 110 pounds and having red hair and brown eyes.

Detectives said Therianos liked to go to bars and often talked with men she did not know personally. Before her disappearance, detectives believe she met a male named Charlie at a bar in New Port Richey.

Charlie was described as a white male, about 70-years-old. He was said to be 5'10" tall with long white hair and a beard.

Therianos was seen with the man on March 11 in a newer model, white GMC Terrain.

Anyone with information about where Judith Therianos or the person named Charlie may be was asked to call the Pasco Sheriff's Office at (727) 847-8102.
