TURNER, Maine — Police are looking for a Maine man who was distraught over the death of his mother when he disappeared this week.

The Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Department says 25-year-old James Lessard of Turner was last seen on Monday. He’d been living with his parents.

Police say he was last seen driving a white cargo work van. He has ties to Canada, but his family was not sure if he was heading in that direction.
