Tech gear helps police find distraught woman

"We used a license reader in order to identify the longitude and latitude to identify the area we believed she might be in," Fossa said.
Cellphones emit the longitude and latitude of their location so Officer Paul McNamara used the Automated License Plate Reader to narrow down the location, he said.
"As such, we were able to locate a young woman from Fitchburg who had traveled from her home," Fossa said. "It's a great story about technology, really."
