LAKEVILLE — Chief Matthew Perkins reports that the Lakeville Police Department and its mutual aid partners safely located a woman who had been reported missing earlier today.

At 5:35 a.m., Lakeville Police responded to a home on Cross Street for a report of a missing 41-year-old female.

Officers initiated a search of the area of Cross Street and Taunton Street, with support from the Southeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council (SEMLEC) Search and Rescue, a SEMLEC drone, the Northeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council’s mobile command post and the Massachusetts State Police Air Wing.
