SACO — A body found off Flag Pond Road has been sent to the state Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy and identification.

A man called police after finding the body at the rear of his property while plowing fields this morning.

Police investigated the scene and arranged for the body’s removal to the Medical Examiner’s Office.

Police would not say whether the man was 27-year-old Christopher Noonan, whose family reported him missing in November. However, police said a search for Noonan scheduled for next week will be delayed until positive identification of the body is made.

After Noonan was reported missing, police conducted several searches of the area with the assistance of the Maine Warden Service. Noonan was reported missing from a home located about a half-mile from where the body was found.

The Medical Examiner’s Office had no information available.
