SANFORD — Maine Warden Service divers on Wednesday recovered the body of a man who went missing when his canoe capsized in Estes Lake.

The body of Kenneth Ham, 56, of Hollis, was located by a remote underwater vehicle and recovered by divers on the second day of a search of the lake, officials said.

Ham drowned on a fishing trip with his son and a friend after their canoe capsized late Monday afternoon, officials said.

A person who lives on the lake launched his own boat and was able to pull the boy and the friend to safety.

The survivors were clinging to the canoe and had been in the water for over 35 minutes, wardens said.
