More than 50 people held a vigil Friday night for three Maine men presumed dead after riding their snowmobiles into Rangeley Lake in late December. Friday night’s vigil on the ice-covered lake was held during Rangeley’s annual Snodeo snowmobile festival. Some people had said the event should be postponed until the bodies are recovered, but Ken Henderson Sr., the father of one of the missing men, said Friday he was glad the event went on and thanked the community. Authorities believed the three men rode into open water in the overnight hours of Dec. 30. The search for the bodies has been put on hold because of ice.
