Maine Warden Service Divers Recover the Body of a Vinalhaven Man
Divers with the Maine Warden Service have recovered the body of a missing Vinalhaven man.
Where Did This Happen?
Owen Adair, 31, of Vinalhaven was reported missing on Monday, after his family found his ATV near Folly Pond in Vinalhaven. They searched the area and found his boots and aluminum canoe along the pond shoreline. Officials say some of Adair's personal items were inside the canoe. When they were unable to find any sign of Adair, his family contacted the Maine Warden service.
How Did They Find Him?
Early Tuesday morning, Warden Service divers started searching Folly Pond, using a camera-equipped submersible ROV, which is a remotely operated vehicle. Late morning, the ROV discovered Adair's body in about 10 feet of water. His body was recovered by Wardens Service divers at approximately 12:15.
His remains were transported to the State Medical Examiner's Office in Augusta, where the M.E. will determine his cause of death. The Maine Warden Service was assisted by members of the Knox County Sheriff's Office, Vinalhaven Fire and Rescue, and the Vinalhaven Water District.
