HOULTON, Maine — A Mapleton man who was the subject of a search by the Maine Warden Service after he did not return home from a hunting trip as planned on Sunday was found dead on Monday night.

Acting Lt. John Cote of the Maine State Police said Tuesday that Mark Brazier, 27, was located by a family friend at 2nd Musquacook Lake in Township 11 Range 11 about 9:30 p.m. Monday.
