PORTLAND, Maine — Police say a Massachusetts man celebrating his graduation from Harvard Business School was tossed out of a waterfront pub before he went missing over the weekend in Portland, Maine.

Police divers on Monday were searching harbor waters near the location where 31-year-old Nathan Bihlmaier was last seen, and they planned to return if necessary on Tuesday.

Police Chief Michael Sauschuck says investigators were covering all the bases by searching the waters. Those efforts were to include deployment of a side-scan sonar.

The Cambridge, Mass., man, whose wife is pregnant with their first child, was with two friends late Saturday when he was asked to leave a bar because he was visibly intoxicated. Bihlmaier was reported missing the following morning. All three men were due to graduate Thursday.
