TOWNSHIP 3 ND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- An Old Town man who had been missing since Wednesday was found dead Friday afternoon.

In a news release from the Maine Warden Service, Cpl. John MacDonald said 41-year-old Troy Crawford was found dead by game wardens around 3:30 p.m. Friday.  

Crawford's car was spotted by Down East Emergency Medical Institute members earlier in the day Friday near Nicatous Lake. The Warden Service then concentrated its search in that area.

A game warden canine team air scented Crawford from the road near an area where clothing evidence had been left behind.

His body was located about 300 yards from his car, and about 60 yards off a locally known road named Oxbow Road and is shown on topographic maps as "The Horseback."

Five game wardens, a Maine Warden Service aircraft, and members of the Down East Emergency Medical Institute Search and Rescue group participated in the search. 

The case remains under investigation by the Maine Warden Service.
