    A Maine man whose mysterious disappearance had baffled authorities has been found dead.

    Twenty-six-year-old Brunswick resident Daniel Gagnon was reported missing nearly a week ago, leaving behind no clues for investigators.

    His body was found just before 11 a.m. Wednesday during a search in a dense wooded area off of River Road in Brunswick by a Maine Warden Service officer and K9, according to Brunswick police.

    Although the investigation is ongoing, his death is not considered suspicious, police said.

    Brunswick police spoke with necn about the investigation on Tuesday, which was described as "frustrating."

    "It's extremely unusual to have very few clues," Brunswick Police Commander Thomas Garrepy said.

    Sister-in-law Krystal Brewer said Gagnon loved his job working security at Bowdoin College, and had plans to buy a house in the Brunswick area. She said he was happy in his relationship, loved his niece and stepdaughter, and kept in close touch with friends and family. No one had any indication something could be wrong.

    "He was happy... so it makes it even harder," said Brewer. "Where would somebody like that go? And why?"

    Police said on Tuesday that Gagnon left his home on Pleasant Street on foot sometime during the afternoon on May 30. He left his car and bicycle behind, only taking his cell phone, which has since been turned off.

    Investigators scoured surveillance footage, examined computer searches, probed whether Gagnon had troubles with substance abuse or mental health — but all of it turned up empty.
