Game officials have recovered the body of a young man in Anson.
21 year old Jordan Cummings is the victim of an apparent swimming accident in the Kennebec River.
Game officials say he and a friend entered the river near route 201A around 7:40 Thursday night with plans to swim down river to a rope swing.
He started struggling and slipped beneath the surface.
Wardens say the friend tried to help him and may have even had some contact with him underwater, but he couldn't return Cummings to the surface.
He was found this morning in the area where he was last seen.
It's still unclear what caused cummings to start struggling in the water.

There have been several reports of great white sharks in northern waters this summer.
Now, there's a confirmed sighting off the coast of Maine.
This video was captured Monday by people aboard a Canadian tour boat.
The shark swam by the boat as it traveled outside Saint Andrews harbor in Passamaquoddy Bay.
According to Canadian news reports, a local scientist confirms it was a great white about 15 feet long.
The good news is that sharks tend to swim several miles off the coast and rarely come close to shore.
