PROSPECT — The Maine Warden Service says an 8-year-old boy who became separated from his father during a fishing trip has been found unharmed.

Authorities say Adam Bennoch of Bucksport was fishing with his father, Jeremy Bennoch, in Waldo County along Hawes Stream on Wednesday. The two became separated sometime Wednesday night.

Game wardens used canoes to search the stream and fire department members searched along the bank. A search dog team found Adam on the south side of the stream in a very remote area about 1:30 a.m. Thursday. Prospect firefighters helped him out of the woods.

Lt. Kevin Adam of the warden service said mild weather and search crews armed with GPS units helped the rescue efforts.
