AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — The Maine medical examiner's office has confirmed the identity of a man's body found in Greenland Cove near Bremen.

Officials identified the body Wednesday as 63-year-old Glenn Murdoch of Bremen, who was reported missing when his empty skiff was found adrift on Aug. 12.

The body was found about 2 miles from Round Pond Harbor, where the search had focused. The Maine Marine Patrol says the cause of death has been ruled a drowning.

The patrol recovered the body on Monday after it was found by a commercial fishing vessel.
