A 38-year-old Warner, N.H., man was pronounced dead Saturday afternoon after searchers found him 300 feet from the shore of Pool Pond in Rindge, N.H. according to New Hampshire State Police.
A call to police at 3 p.m. Saturday reported Benjamin Dabuliewicz missing at Pool Pond, according to a statement from the State Police.
Dabuliewicz’s dog had been found swimming in the water earlier with no one else around, according to the statement, and personal belongings were found at a nearby beach.
