BRISTOL, Maine (AP) — Divers are searching for a man whose empty skiff was discovered in Bristol, Maine.

The Maine Marine Patrol and state police divers are searching for 63-year-old Glenn Murdoch, of Bremen, after his empty skiff was found in Round Pond Harbor on Monday night.

A marine patrol spokesman said Tuesday that the search focused around the man's mooring about 100 yards offshore from the town dock in Round Pond Harbor.

The man was reported missing around 9:30 p.m. Monday.

The Maine Marine Patrol, Bristol fire department and U.S. Coast Guard searched the coastline and harbor Monday night until about 1 a.m. The missing man's name wasn't immediately released.
