STANDISH, Maine (CBS/AP) — Maine game wardens and local rescue personnel found the body of a New Hampshire man who was reported missing after he went fishing in a kayak.
The Maine Warden’s Service said 39-year-old Timothy Clauge, of Nottingham, New Hampshire, went fishing in his kayak on Watchic Lake late Thursday or early Friday.
He was reported missing early Friday afternoon.
Clauge’s overturned kayak was recovered Friday by an area resident.
Wardens say the initial search was suspended late Friday, but it resumed Saturday morning.
Clauge’s body was found using side scan sonar in 29 feet of water about one-third of a mile from where he was seen launching his kayak. Clauge was not wearing a life jacket.
