Rain coupled with fog and warmer weather have made conditions in many places dangerous for snowmobilers.
Wardens say the man, who is from Connecticut, Was staying at a family camp on North Twin Lake. He was reported missing just after midnight Monday night.
When wardens retraced his tracks, they led in to the lake. 18 wardens and a team of nine divers spent the day looking for the man and recovered his sled.
Millinocket Game Warden, Andrew Glidden, says with the ever changing ice conditions, snowmobliers need to take special care when riding near water.
Wardens have not released the snowmobiler’s name, but we’re told his family has arrived in the area.
