November 12, 2018

NEW PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — The Maine Warden Service says the body of a missing hunter from New Hampshire has been located.

Authorities say wardens found 59-year-old Todd Babula, of Portsmouth, late Sunday afternoon, a day after he was reported missing.

There was no immediate word on the cause of death. Wardens say the state medical examiner’s office has been notified.

Babula has a camp in New Portland, Maine, and has hunted deer in the woods nearby for many years.

Officials said Babula’s truck got stuck on a snowmobile trail Saturday morning and that he made arrangements to retrieve it later in the day with help from neighbors. The search was launched when he never returned from hunting.
