YARMOUTH — Game wardens on Monday recovered the body of a 45-year-old Yarmouth woman who drove a snowmobile into open water on partially ice-covered Rangeley Lake Sunday evening.

Dawn Newell was riding a snowmobile on the lake at about 7 p.m. Sunday, when the ice gave way and she went under, according to the Maine Warden Service. Her 16-year-old son, who was following behind her, was able to jump to solid ice and called 911.

Wardens recovered Newell’s body at about 11:30 a.m. Monday, according to the warden service.

In a separate incident, wardens were continuing their search for three men lost in a snowmobile incident near where Newell was found.

Early Tuesday, wardens suspended their search due to inclement weather.

The three missing men were identified as Kenneth Henderson, 40, of China, Glenn Henderson, 43, of Sabattus, and John Spencer, 41, of Litchfield.
