Waldoboro Man Dies in Snowmobile Incident on Damariscotta Lake
Aaugusta, Maine - A Waldoboro man who was last seen on Wednesday night en route from Waldoboro to Nobleboro was recovered from Damariscotta Lake today (January 14, 2010).
Tim York, 45, of Waldoboro, was last seen riding a snowmobile at approximately 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday, and was reported missing to the Maine Warden Service at approximately 9 a.m. today. He said he was going to travel by snowmobile from Waldoboro to Nobleboro on or near Damariscotta Lake.
The Maine Warden Service initiated a search for Mr. York this morning, and the search was conducted by air, along the shoreline and on the lake. A Maine Warden Service pilot spotted what was believed to be Mr. York’s snowmobile in the lake, and that area became the focus of the search. The sled was noticed through a hole in the lake’s ice.
Mr. York was located in that area by Maine Warden Service divers. His family has been notified.
Mr. York was taken to Halls Funeral Home in Waldoboro.
The Maine Warden Service was assisted by the Lincoln County Emergency Management Agency and its Communications System, the Jefferson and Newcastle Fire Departments, the Waldoboro Police Department, and Central Lincoln County Ambulance.
