GOULDSBORO — A search pilot looking for an eastern Maine man who went missing more than a month ago has found a body on the shore of an island.

Officials say they are waiting to hear back from the medical examiner’s office on the identity of a man’s body that was found Wednesday on the shore of Stave Island, which is part of Gouldsboro and located in Frenchman Bay.

The Bangor Daily News says the body was spotted by a Marine Patrol pilot who was flying over the area as part of a search for 57-year-old Wayne Hodgkins, whose pickup truck was found nearby in early December. Hodgkins was last seen Dec. 3.
