CARRABASSETT VALLEY — Wardens say three snowmobilers are missing in western Maine after going for an evening ride and failing to return.
The Maine Warden Service says the three men left Carrabassett Valley at about 6 p.m. Sunday and were last heard from in Eustis, a couple of towns away.
Cpl. John MacDonald says the men were expected to return but never showed up. He says the riders had cellphones but have not called in.
Wardens searched the area during the night in frigid conditions and resumed search efforts Monday morning.
Low temperatures and high winds are making for a wind chill of well below zero across western and northern Maine.
