ME - Richard "Shaw" Jackson - 18 years old - China Lake - 1 Jan 2010
2 Jan 10
The Maine Wardens Service is searching the China Lake area for a missing teenager.
18 year old Richard Jackson was last seen Friday night around 08:00 or 09:00 PM. He was on his way home from the Pinkham Fuel Center where he was fixing up his snowmobile. Wardens say he was riding his snowmobile, a black Yamaha Exciter, but they don't know what route he took. They don't know whether Jackson went via a known trail or chose to ride across the lake.
As of Noon, Wardens are on scene. More crews are en route, including local snowmobile clubs that have been authorised by the Wardens Service.
If anyone has any information into the whereabouts of Richard Jackson is urged to contact Augusta State Police at 624-7076.

Missing - China Lake, ME
I just heard this on the news. I'm sure this darn snow we've had in our state all weekend is not helping in the search. My heart goes out to the young mans family and friends. I pray that they locate him safe and sound.

UPDATE 1/5/10 (1:30PM) Maine Warden Service: Search Continues for Missing Snowmobiler
Game wardens and warden pilots, too, continue to search snowmobile trails and China Lake from the ground and from the air. Two airboats and warden divers are on the water.On Monday night, Jan. 4, the Maine Warden Service located snowmobile tracks that lead into the west cove of China Lake where the water is open, according to MWS Col. Joel Wilkinson.
At this time, there is NO indication that the tracks were made by the snowmobile driven by the missing teen, Richard Jackson, 18, a junior at Erskine Academy, according to Col. Wilkinson.
“We’re not certain those are his tracks near the cove,” Wilkinson said. “But this is an area of concern and we are putting resources there, and we are continuing to search in other areas as well.”

CHINA Wardens continue to pursue leads on missing snowmobiler
BY SCOTT MONROE
CHINA -- It's been a month since the Maine Warden Service suspended its search for Richard "Shaw" Jackson, an 18-year-old snowmobiler who went missing the night of Jan. 1.
During the last month, warden officials said they have flown an airplane over China Lake several times and investigated at least three new leads.
But none of those efforts have offered any insight into the key mystery: Where is Jackson?
"It is still a 'missing persons' case and is being worked on by the Maine Warden Service," said Deborah Turcotte, spokeswoman for the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. "We have no information whether he's alive or deceased. After the case was suspended after six days of searching, we still had a lot of unanswered questions. The first, of course, is where could he have gone? But the wardens haven't learned anything since then."
