RANGELEY, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The Maine Warden Service says it has recovered the body of a snowmobiler from Rangeley Lake.

Officials say the body was located just after noon on Friday in 135 feet of water. It was taken to the State Medical Examiner's Office in Augusta where it was positively identified as that of 43-year-old Glenn Henderson of Sabattus.

Glenn Henderson, 41-year-old John Spencer of Litchfield and 40-year-old Ken Henderson of China apparently went into open water on the lake on December 30. The Maine Warden Service had to stop their recovery operations in January when ice formed and temperatures dipped below zero.

On Thursday, game wardens used side scanning sonar to search the area near where the men's sleds, helmets and gloves were found earlier this year. When the sonar located a number of areas of interest, divers went in.

The Warden Service says search operations have been suspended. They will reassess on Monday pending the weather conditions.
