Authorities: Body of missing Maine priest believed found

Authorities believe they have found the body of an elderly, retired priest who has been missing for more than two months.

The Maine Warden Service says a man clearing trails near a lake Saturday afternoon found a car that belonged to Clement Thibodeau, of Caribou, stuck near a remote road south of Springfield, Maine.

Game wardens later found the remains of a body nearby. The medical examiner's office will make a positive identification. Foul play is not suspected.

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland says Thibodeau was a pastor at Notre Dame Church in Waterville from 1980 to 1987.

Thibodeau disappeared July 15 from a restaurant and might have been experiencing dementia-like symptoms.

Authorities said Saturday he was 82-years-old.
