Maine police are searching for a family missing for more than two weeks after leaving for what was supposed to be a three-day camping trip.

Jill Sidebotham, 28, Nicholas Hansen, 38, and their 2-year-old daughter Lydia were last seen on July 2 at a Walmart store in the town of Mexico, Maine, about 180 miles north of Boston. The parents are no longer a couple, and Sidebotham is reportedly engaged to another man.

Prior to the July 2 sighting, which police said did not appear suspicious, they last had contact with Sidebotham’s family on June 27, when they set out for a camping trip, according to the Sanford Police Department. They were expected to return three days later.

In a Facebook post appealing to tips from the public, Sidebotham’s father Ron Sidebotham wrote that "It’s not Jill’s nature at all to just disappear" and asked for anyone with information to contact police.

Last week, Sanford police said they were trying to locate the family to check on their wellbeing but had "no indication the family is in danger."

"Out of caution, we would like to confirm this and advise them of the extended family’s concerns," the department said in a statement on July 8.

Police did not immediately respond to a Fox News Digital request for an update Friday.
