DOVER-FOXCROFT, Maine — A missing Austrian man who has been visiting Maine and had last been seen on March 22 was located Thursday morning, a dispatcher from Piscataquis County Sheriff’s Office said.

“He has been found,” the dispatcher said. “He walked into a logging camp up on Telos Road.”

The sheriff’s department and the Maine Warden Service asked for the public’s help in finding Johannes Stummer, 25, on Wednesday after he had been missing for a week.

Stummer arrived in the United States around March 1 and spent time in Vermont and then Canada before coming to Maine on March 12. He had been staying in the Big Moose Township area since March 18, according to Piscataquis County sheriff’s Lt. Robert Young.

Stummer was reported missing Friday by the staff at Moose Mountain Inn in Greenville, where he had been staying, after he did not return to his lodgings, police said.

Police investigators were still interviewing Stummer Thursday morning, so details about where he has been for the last week were not available, the dispatcher said.
