Lubec Man’s Body Found 

Police say the body of 27-year-old Kristopher Fergerson was found Thursday afternoon by a man who was combing a beach in Lubec not far from where Fergerson went missing.

The body was taken to the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Augusta.

Washington County Sheriff Donnie Smith says police are treating Fergerson’s death as a drowning.

It’s believed Fergerson got stranded on a sandbar and was prevented from returning to shore by a rising tide while harvesting periwinkles with a friend.
