AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - A game warden surveying ice conditions on northern Maine lakes has discovered what’s believed to be the body of a 67-year-old Quebec man who disappeared in November.

The body, thought to be that of Renald Poulin, was removed from Umbazooksus Lake, about two miles northwest of the dam on Tuesday. Identification will be made by the medical examiner’s office in Augusta.

Poulin entered the United States from Quebec on Nov. 26 and was to return home the next day. A search turned up his car near the Umbazooksus Dam, but the remote and snow-covered location made it difficult to track him. The search was suspended in mid-December.

Authorities believe Poulin was in the area pursuing an interest in an old rail line once used by the logging industry.
