ANDOVER, Maine — Divers from the Maine Warden Service will resume their search for two Boston men missing in Lower Richardson Lake on Tuesday morning.

Officials say 26-year-year-old Hoang Vo and 30-year-old Phil Le last were seen Friday when they decided to go swimming while camping with a large group.

On Sunday, Edie Smith from the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife said nothing was found despite a full day’s search and the use of sonar equipment. The search continued Monday but was unsuccessful.

Smith said full dive operations are due to resume Tuesday.

Smith has said the men had been drinking before they went into the water and alcohol is considered a factor in the incident.
