Search continues for missing Vt. man in Maine

Posted: Updated:

A young man from Vermont is missing in Maine, along with a friend, and authorities are focusing their search for the two boat-building students in the ocean.

Police say 21-year-old Zachary Wells of Burlington and 23-year-old Prescott Wright, of Barnstable Massachusetts were last seen drinking beer with friends at Wells' residence in Kennebunkport.

A search of roadsides, marshes and the ocean turned up clothing early Monday morning on an island near Kennebunkport.

"We tried to do the immediate area thinking there could have been an accident with water. Right now we don't know. We don't have any indication. We have no indication that there was any kind of foul play," says Chief Craig Sanford.

The ongoing search will include flyovers at low tide of the area where the clothing was found.
