Body of Missing Hampden Teen is Found
Augusta, Maine - The body of a male teen located at approximately 1:45 p.m. today near a gravel pit on back Winterport Road in Hampden has been positively identified as Nathan Clark, 17, of Hampden.
Mr. Clark’s body is being transported to the Office of the Medical Examiner in Augusta, where an autopsy will be performed on Friday.
The teen’s family has been notified.
Mr. Clark was reported missing by his father on Sunday. The Hampden Police Department began an extensive search with the assistance of the Maine Warden Service, the Hampden Police Department, the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office, the Maine State Police, and LifeFlight.
Sunday’s search was halted at approximately 3 a.m. on Monday. It was the first of three efforts to locate Mr. Clark, who on Monday was considered to be a runaway.
On Monday, Game Wardens from the Maine Warden Service used snowmobiles and an aircraft to search for the teen.
Because Mr. Clark had not been seen by friends or family in the following days, the Hampden Police Department formally asked the Maine Warden Service to bring in resources to conduct another search today.
The male teen was located at approximately 1:45 p.m. by Game Warden Roger Guay and his K-9 Maggie. In addition to Warden Guay, several Game Wardens, the Maine State Police and search dog teams from Maine Search and Rescue Dogs (MESARD) were out in the woods looking for the teen.
According to Sgt. Daniel Stewart of the Hampden Police Department, the Maine State Police is processing the area where the teen was located “as a crime scene.”
The incident is under investigation
