BANGOR, Maine — Personnel from the Maine Warden Service were busy late Monday and early Tuesday searching for three hunters who were reported missing in two separate incidents.

All three were found safe.

Two of the hunters were found on the shore of Moosehead Lake in Piscataquis County. Their names were not available Tuesday afternoon.

The two reportedly left Rockwood on Monday and crossed the lake by boat. They were reported missing by family members after they failed to return late Monday and were located about 8:30 a.m. by Warden Pilot Daryl Gordon, according to Sgt. William Chandler of the Maine Warden Service.

A third hunter was found about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday in Bowtown Township in Somerset County, according to Warden Rick Clowry.

Doug Bardo, 55, of Jay was reported missing late Monday night by members of the hunting party he was with, Clowry said. The warden said Bardo became lost and spent the night in the woods between Bowtown Road and the Kennebec River.

Bardo walked out of the woods to the Bowtown Road early Tuesday morning, Clowry said.
