RANGELEY, Maine (AP) _ The Maine Warden Service dive team has recovered one of the three missing snowmobilers who crashed through ice in Rangeley Lake last winter.

The team used a remote operated vehicle Friday to retrieve the body from 135 feet of water. The body was taken to the state medical examiner's office for identification.

The three missing men are 40-year-old Ken Henderson of China, 43-year-old Glenn Henderson of Sabattus and 41-year-old John Spencer of Litchfield. Wardens believe they drove onto open water on the partially frozen like in whiteout conditions on Dec. 31.

The snowmobilers are believed to have gone in the water on the same night a Yarmouth woman was killed when she accidentally rode her snowmobile onto the partially frozen lake.
