    Wardens Use Plane to Help Appalachian Trail Hiker

    The Maine Wardens Service says an Appalachian Trail hiker was rescued by wardens who used a float plane to reach him in a remote area along the trail.

    Wardens say the Penobscot County Sheriff's Office received the 911 call just after noon Friday from 25-year-old Devin Kaufman, of Fairfield.

    Wardens determined Kaufman was on the Appalachian Trail in Rainbow Township, near the southeast end of Rainbow Lake.

    Two game wardens were flown in by a warden service aircraft and dropped off at the shore of Rainbow Lake where they located Kaufman who was ill and weak.
