SMITHFIELD, Maine — Maine game wardens say a missing 87-year-old Smithfield man has been found dead near his home.

Phillip Golding of East Pond Road last was seen by a neighbor at about 8:30 a.m. Monday.

Wardens found his body around 12:45 p.m. Tuesday after a Forest Service helicopter spotted something from the air.

Golding did not drive and had medical problems.

Warden service spokeswoman Deborah Turcotte said wardens searched through the night and were joined Tuesday by additional volunteers.
