A missing Etna man has been rescued after spending nearly 30 hours lost in the woods.

Joseph Nolin, 74, was last seen about 8:45 a.m. Sunday near his son’s Dunham Road home in Etna, where he was going to check game cameras, Shannon Moss, a spokesperson for the Maine Department of Public Safety, said Monday morning.

At some point during his trip into the woods, Nolin became lost and walked until he couldn’t anymore, coming to a rest at the edge of the Etna Bog, about a mile into the woods from his house, Mark Latti, a spokesperson for the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, said late Monday night after Nolin’s rescue.

His son reported him missing about 7 p.m. Sunday. That night temperatures dipped below freezing.

On Monday, a search dog picked up Nolin’s scent about 1:45 p.m. and led Game Warden Michael Latti to Nolin, who was hypothermic and dehydrated after 30 hours in the woods.

Nolin was airlifted by a warden service helicopter to an ambulance waiting at his son’s house, Mark Latti said.

He was released after being warmed up and rehydrated.
