Weather stymies recovery for Maine snowmobilers
RANGELEY, Maine (AP) -- Maine Warden Service divers are hoping for better weather so they can continue searching for the bodies of three snowmobilers believed to have plunged into Rangeley Lake.
Cpl. John MacDonald said a sonar used for several hours on Thursday revealed areas of interest that divers want to investigate this week. But weather has stymied progress.
Glenn Henderson of Sabattus, Kenneth Henderson of China, and John Spencer of Litchfield are presumed dead after going missing. Wardens have recovered gloves and helmets believed to belong to the missing men, and snowmobile tracks lead to an unfrozen area near the middle of the lake.
They're believed to have gone into the water around the same time a Yarmouth woman was killed Sunday night when her snowmobile plunged into the lake.
