PORTLAND — Portland Police have identifed the body of a man who was found floating in the waters off Ram Island last Thursday.

Lt. Gary Rogers said the body of 66-year-old Henry Witmer of Portland was discovered on the morning of June 3 during routine patrol operations in the area around Ram Island.

Witmer was reported by his employer as missing a week before his body was found, Rogers said.

An autopsy has been performed by the state Medical Examiner’s Office, but there was no word late Monday from the state on his cause of death.
