Maine Wardens Locate 3 Snowmobiles in Lake
02/28/2013 10:20 AM ET  

Maine wardens said they have located all three snowmobiles that went through the ice of Rangeley Lake, but the bodies of the missing snowmobilers are still missing.

RANGELEY, Maine (AP) _ The Maine Warden Service said the machines were located on Monday using a remotely operated, underwater vehicle to search the depths of the ice-covered lake.

Two of the missing snowmobiles were found earlier this week. The third was found Wednesday.
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.

The search was delayed until this week because of cold and ice.

Cpl. John MacDonald said if the bodies aren't found this week, recovery operations will be postponed until spring.
