GREENWOOD, Maine — A 64-year-old snowmobiler who was reported missing following an alleged fight has been found along a power line trail in the western Maine town of Greenwood.

The Maine Warden Service said Bill Laturneau of Oxford was wearing snowmobile pants but lacked boots or a jacket when he was spotted from the air at around 10 a.m. Sunday. Laturneau was transported to a Norway hospital, where he was being evaluated for possible hypothermia.

Officials said Laturneau allegedly got into a fight at a camp near Greenwood. He left on his snowmobile at 1 a.m., and wasn’t reported missing until seven hours later.
