Authorities: Body is that of ex-priest missing for 2 months

October 04, 2017 - 6:45 AM

SPRINGFIELD, Maine - Maine authorities say a body found over the weekend is that of an elderly, retired priest who was missing for more than two months.

The Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife released a statement on Tuesday confirming the body of Clement Thibodeau, of Caribou, had been found. Game wardens found Thibodeau's remains on Sept. 30 after a man discovered his car near a remote road south of Springfield. Foul play is not suspected.

Thibodeau disappeared July 15 from a restaurant in Caribou. Authorities say he might have been experiencing dementia-like symptoms at the time.

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland says Thibodeau was a pastor at Notre Dame Church in Waterville from 1980 to 1987.
