Recovery efforts for Maine snowmobilers postponed

Continue reading below

PORTLAND, Maine — Unsafe weather conditions forced officials Wednesday to again postpone ­efforts to recover the bodies of three snowmobilers who are presumed dead after riding into Rangeley Lake, an accident that was part of probably the worst snowmobile tragedy in state history.

In a short span Sunday night, four people died — the three men riding together and a woman who was riding separately — when they drove their machines into icy open waters.

The men have been identified as Kenneth Henderson, 40, of China; Glenn Henderson, 43, of Sabattus; and John Spencer, 41, of Litchfield. Recovery efforts were put off Tuesday and Wednesday because of high winds and frigid temperatures, which can freeze sonar equipment.
