WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Police are asking anyone with information about a missing eastern Massachusetts resident to contact the dispatch center at 413-458-5733.
On Tuesday morning, Williamstown Police received a report of a suspicious vehicle parked near the end of Berlin Road, a hiking area near the New York State Line, according to a news release from the WPD on Wednesday.
Police determined the vehicle was registered to Fae Morgana Barbone, a missing person from the Abington/Hanson area on the South Shore, the release said. 
"This person had been reported as missing several days earlier with unconfirmed sightings in North Adams and the Carolinas and a confirmed interaction with law enforcement in the state of Maine," WPD said.
Williamstown Police used its K-9 unit and drone surveillance to search the area, they said.
As of 8 a.m. Wednesday morning, the search continued.
Williamstown Police asked the public to avoid the area at the end of Berlin Road so as not to interfere with authorities.
According to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System, Barbone was reported missing to Abington Police. Her car, a black 2019 Ford Festiva coupe with license plate 259TB, was reported on a street in Augusta, Maine, on March 7. She was caught on security camera footage at an ATM on March 6.
Barbone is described as 40 years old and white, standing 6-foot-2 with brown hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing a light blue denim jacket, purple sweat shirt, black leggings and brown shoes. There is a peace sign tattoo on the back of her neck. 
The search team included the New York and Massachusetts State Police, Massachusetts Environmental Police and the New York Environmental Conservation Police, according to the news release.
