State Police have resumed their search for a man believed to have fallen through the ice on a lake while using a tractor to move an ice shanty. Police said divers have searched Lake Memphremagog in Newport Center for James LeBlanc, 53, of Newport, but were experiencing difficult conditions due to cold temperatures and murkiness at the lake bottom. Police said they received a report about 7:30 p.m. Saturday of an ice shanty and tractor going through the ice. Police later determined that it was likely that a man went into the lake, as well.
