The body of a Massachusetts man has been recovered on the shores of a remote lake in Maine.
Officials said James Fulginiti, 64 of Falmouth, had not been seen by friends for several days.
A local campground owner drove a boat to Fulginiti's camp on Little Beaver Pond, and found Fulginiti's dog alone and Fulginiti's boat stuck in the mud in a nearby cove. The dog appeared to have been alone for several days with no sign of Fulginiti.
The campground owner called the Maine Warden Service at about 10:44 a.m. Saturday. Four game wardens arrived and began searching.
Fulginiti's body was discovered along the shore of the pond at 2:30 p.m., about 200 yards from his camp.
Investigators said it appears the boat broke free from Fulginiti's camp, and drifted into the cove across from the camp, and that Fulginiti had walked along the shore to try to retrieve it. The boat was stuck in shallow water and mud about 70 feet from shore.
Fulginiti was taken to the State Medical Examiner's office in Augusta to determine a cause of death.
