Man Missing in Long Lake (St. Agatha)
Augusta, Maine - The Maine Warden Service on Thursday morning will continue a search for a male in his 20s who is presumed drowned after trying to retrieve a child's float toy from the waters of Long Lake in St. Agatha-Madawaska.
The man, who is not being identified because his family is being notified, dove into the water before 4:30 p.m. today (Sept. 9, 2009) to get the toy. He did not resurface.
The incident occurred off Birch Point on the northeast shore of Long Lake. The land is Madawaska and the water is St. Agatha.
Six Game Wardens, including a pilot, responded to the scene. Also involved in the search today were public safety officials from Madawaska Police, Madawaska Fire and Ambulance, Fort Kent Ambulance, and a dive team from Edmundston, New Brunswick.
Members of the Maine Warden Service and its Dive Team will be on the scene on Thursday morning to resume the search.
