SMITHFIELD — The body of a Smithfield man who had been missing since Monday morning was found this afternoon in woods about a half-mile from his East Pond Road home.

Phillip Golding, who would have turned 87 today, was last seen by a neighbor at about 8:30 a.m. Monday. A massive search was conducted by the Maine Warden Service and dozens of trained rescue personnel and volunteers who combed the swampy woods all night Monday until the body was located by a helicopter at about 12:45 p.m. today, according to Lt. Kevin Adam, state search-and-rescue coordinator for the Maine Warden Service.

An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause and the time of death, Adam said. Foul play is not suspected in the case, he said.
