Hinsdale Police Searching For Missing Woman

Staff Reports

The woman was last seen on Smith Road Wednesday morning.
HINSDALE, Mass. — Police are asking for help locating a woman who went missing Wednesday morning.
 
Jacqueline Coutinho was last seen on Smith Road at about 10:15 on Wednesday morning. Police and emergency responders have been searching for her for three days now but have been unable to find any clues to her whereabouts.
 
Anyone with information about where Coutinho might be to are asked to contact police at 413-655-0201.
 
Police Chief Susan Rathbun said there nothing to suggest anything nefarious happened nor is there any indication of that the woman was suffering from any mental health issues causing her to wander off.
 
But still, the search conducted by Police, the Fire Department, Berkshire Mountain Search and Rescue, and the Massachusetts State Police have so far been unsuccessful in locating her.
 
"Wednesday until dark we searched and then we searched all [Thursday]," Rathbun said. 
 
The search has entailed K9 units, foot patrols, and a helicopter. Rathbun said there are no missing vehicles related to the case. The woman had been visiting her sister in Hinsdale.
 
"She was here with her sister. She had been here about a month," Rathbun said. 
 
Coutinho was last seen wearing a purple/red sweater, blue jeans, and white sneakers. She is described as white with blonde and gray hair, and standing approximately 5-feet-6 and weighing about 130 pounds.
