SOUTHWEST HARBOR — Maine state police say partial human remains found in an area of Southwest Harbor in late August are likely those of a man who disappeared nearly a year ago.

Police say the remains are likely those of 61-year-old Pete Peterson.

The determination was made after additional items were recovered in a search in Southwest Harbor on today.

State and local police, wardens, Acadia National Park rangers and members of the state Medical Examiner’s Office focused their search near the Village Ocean’s End subdivision to look for additional remains and items to help determine the person’s identity.

Police would not say what was found. Authorities don’t know how Peterson died but they do not suspect foul play.
