Two Snowmobiles Found in Rangeley Lake

Updated 2 years ago

(AP) – Maine wardens have found two sunken snowmobiles in Rangeley Lake in their search for three men who are presumed to have accidentally driven their snowmobiles into the lake nearly two months ago.The Maine Warden Service said they found the machines on Monday using a remotely operated, underwater vehicle to search the depths of the ice-covered lake.The men are believed to have driven their machines into open waters in late December on the same night a Yarmouth woman was killed when she accidentally rode her snowmobile into the lake.Wardens resumed recovery efforts this week after putting the search on hold in early January because of cold and ice.Cpl. John MacDonald said if the bodies aren’t found this week, recovery operations will be postponed until spring.
