MATTAWAMKEAG, Maine (AP) - The Maine Warden Service says they have found the body of a missing 9-year-old swimmer who had disappeared in the Mattawamkeag River in Penobscot County.

Authorities say the girl and an adult male had gone into the water on Friday and tried to swim across to the Sleugundy Heater Gorge when they became separated in the swift water.

WCSH reports (https://on.wcsh6.com/1JDt3B8 ) that the man made it across but the girl did not.
