SKOWHEGAN, Maine — Skowhegan police officers and members of the Maine Warden Service are looking for a Skowhegan man who hasn’t been seen in a week.

Jeff Godin, 42, last was seen at SouthSide Tavern on Waterville Road and Bloomfield’s Cafe on Water Street in Skowhegan. He was caught on surveillance cameras walking alone north on Madison Avenue at 1:03 a.m. Saturday, according to Skowhegan police Sgt. Joel Cummings.

The Maine Warden Service will join the search for Godin on Friday morning. The dam that runs alongside the Margaret Chase Smith Bridge, owned by Florida Light and Power, will be checked on Friday.

Cummings said witness accounts differ as to what Godin was wearing, but most agree he had on a T-shirt, bluejeans and baseball cap.

Cummings said there are no signs of foul play but friends told police it was unusual for Godin to leave his dog alone for such a long time. Cummings also said Officer Ronnie Blodgett plans to work the case on his day off Friday.

Anyone with information about Godin and his possible whereabouts is urged to call the Skowhegan Police Department at 474-6908 or 474-6386.
