A 15-year-old teen who had been missing from his North Waterboro home for nine days was found Saturday in Lake Arrowhead by Maine Game Wardens, according to WGME.

Jaden Dremsa's body will now be examined by the Maine Medical Examiner's Office in Augusta to determine the exact cause of death, according to the Portland television news station. Authorities said that Dremsa left his home located off Route 5 on May 8 and went for a walk in the woods.
