STANDISH, Maine - Game warden divers recovered the body of 39-year-old Timothy Clauge earlier this afternoon in Watchic Lake. Clauge's body was observed using side scan sonar by Warden Service divers in 29 feet of water approximately 1/3 of a mile from where he was last seen launching his kayak two nights prior. Clauge was not wearing a lifejacket. Game wardens scanned nearly 100 acres of the lake before finding Clauges body.
