MILLINOCKET, Maine (WABI) - Wardens spent overnight searching for two women in the greater Millinocket area.

Millinocket's Police Chief says that Aprylle Tapley-Pepper and Tammy Michaud were last seen Sunday afternoon around 4 p.m.

The pair had been playing in a pool tournament at Highlands Tavern in Millinocket that day.

Witnesses told authorities that the women said they were going to go for a ride on the Golden Road afterward.

They are believed to be driving in a grey Kia Sportage, Maine veteran license plate 872-86.

Lt. Kevin Adams with the Maine Warden Service says they hope to send up planes Tuesday to search by air, if the weather cooperates.

He is asking folks not to go out searching for the two women on their own. Lt. Adams reminds everyone this is mud season and it is easy to get stuck on the roads.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact authorities.
