Lubec Search Suspended Overnight 

30-year-old Kristopher Fergerson disappeared Tuesday night while he was digging for Perwinkles with his friend Dennis Knox on a sand bar in Lubec Narrows.

Knox told police that the two became separated by rising waters, and he could hear Fergerson calling for help.

Knox notified customs in Lubec, and the Coast Guard quickly responded, but they were unable to find Fergerson.

The state police criminal investigative division has been called in to assist in the investigation.
