GRAFTON — The search for a missing North Woodstock woman entered its second day Wednesday with a large contingent from New Hampshire State Police and other agencies staging at the Mill Brook Christian Fellowship church — next door to a home at 225 Main St. surrounded by crime-scene tape.

Tricia Haynes, 25, was last seen in the Grafton/Danbury area in late June or early July.

On Tuesday, police K9 units and a State Police helicopter also searched the area around the Main Street home.

Associate Attorney General Jeffery A. Strelzin said the search for Haynes, which began after a family member notified police, is continuing and that it remains a missing-person case.

He said he could not comment on why the search was being conducted in Grafton, nor on why the property at 225 Main St. was of particular interest, except to say that “I can tell you the State Police are looking for any evidence that would lead to the missing person, Trish.”

According to Grafton property records, 225 Main St. is owned by Douglas Carpenter; a town official said Carpenter does not live in the house.

Strelzin said the investigation is proceeding “day by day” and that the venue of the search may change as the investigation requires.

The search for Haynes, who is 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighs 110 pounds and has brown hair and blue eyes, was announced Tuesday by Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald, State Police Col. Christopher J. Wagner, and Woodstock Police Chief Ryan Oleson.

Strelzin said Wednesday that “based on the investigation today, we are not aware of any particular threat to the public.”

Strelzin asked anyone with information about Haynes to contact the New Hampshire State Police at 271-3636.

On her Facebook page, which was last updated on Feb. 15, Haynes said she lives in North Woodstock and comes from Stuart, Fla., and that she goes by the nicknames “Trishy” and “Trishett.”
