Maine wardens search Moosehead Lake for person

Warden Service issues

another warning about thin ice

 GREENVILLE — The Maine Warden Service has issued another stern warning for people to be vigilant when venturing onto bodies of water as they followed up on reports Thursday that someone was observed struggling in the water near the East Outlet of Moosehead Lake.

Three people on shore reported to wardens Thursday that they had observed a person struggling in the water near Wilsons campground, which prompted a search by game wardens and other law enforcement officers in the region.

Wardens used an airboat to search the water, and Warden Pilot Charlie Later searched from the air after the 2 p.m. report, but they did not see any signs of a person in the water, Deborah Turcotte, the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife spokeswoman, said Thursday evening.

Turcotte said while there have been no reports of a missing person, wardens do plan to bring in a dive team today to resume their search of the area where the person reportedly was spotted in the water.
