GRAND LAKE STREAM, Maine — Maine Warden Service wardens, divers and a plane are searching for a missing man who was ejected from his boat Wednesday afternoon when it collided with another boat on West Grand Lake.

Wardens were called late Wednesday afternoon to investigate the two-boat crash on the lake near the town of Grand Lake Stream. The two boats involved were a 16-foot Lund with a 40-horsepower Honda motor and 14-foot open boat with an 8-horsepower motor. The only male passenger believed to be on board the 14-foot boat was ejected and is missing. The two men who were in the Lund are safe.

Names and other details about the incident are not being released at this time.

Several game wardens, the Maine Warden Service dive team, and a Warden Service aircraft are involved in Thursday’s search efforts.
