A woman told police she hadn’t been able to contact Shortt since Sunday, when he texted her around 5:30 p.m., according to court records. After she reportedly couldn’t get ahold of him via text or phone call, she went to the North Main Street home, where she found him in the basement.
A 2001 red Honda CR-V was missing from the home, according to court records.
Police said Tuesday they believe it is an isolated incident and there is no danger to the community.
