Police Looking For Man Who Entered Kennebec River In Waterville
Law enforcement in Waterville are continuing to look for a man who they believe entered the Kennebec River on Monday.
According to a report in the KJ, police believe that 42 year old James Lessard entered the Kennebec River RiverWalk in downtown Waterville on Monday.
There has been no sign of him since he supposedly entered the water.
For the better part of a week, a search has been conducted for the missing man. So far, there has been no sign of him. Local first responders, including police and fire department personnel, have used boats and a drone to search along the river. The Maine Warden Service and Maine Marine Patrol are now leading the investigation. The search now includes the use of divers and an aircraft.
The article gives no reason as to why he may have entered the water. It also does not indicate how police know he went into the water.
Obviously, our thoughts go out to Mr. Lessard and his loved ones. We hope he is found safe.
