A 38-year-old Shapleigh man who went missing Wednesday night was found safe not far from where he was last seen, authorities said.
A Maine game warden using a K9 search dog found Michael Lauziere on Thursday afternoon in Shapleigh, about a half of a mile from where he was last spotted on a local road, according to Cpl. John MacDonald of the Maine Warden’s Service.
He appeared to be healthy but will be examined by medical personnel, he said.
Lauzier went missing around 8 p.m. Wednesday night, and was last seen near 166 Deering Ridge Road. Game wardens and the York County Sheriff’s Office launched a search for him that ended less than a day later.
