Family searches for missing fisherman

ROCKLAND - The Knox County Sheriff's Office continues to investigate the disappearance of a local fisherman.

Officials said Ryan Hayward, 25, of Rockland hasn't been heard from since September 11.


His family stated that's highly unusual and they're also concerned because he has a serious medical condition.


Police added Hayward is a local long shore fisherman and the last information they had on his location placed him in the Boston area..


His family has decided to turn to the public for help because they've done as much as they can on their own and none of his friends have heard from him.


Anyone with information that could help is asked to contact the Knox County Sheriff's Department.

Craig Colson became news director and anchor at WVII ABC 7 and WFVX Fox Bangor in December of 2012. He began his career in broadcasting in 1985 while working as a news photographer at another Bangor television station. Craig worked his way up through the ranks and became the main anchor for the nightly newscasts before leaving in 2009. At that point, he became news director for four local radio stations and delivered the morning news before taking on his current position.

Craig grew up in a "news family" and followed in the footsteps of his father who was also a news director and anchor. His brother is also a news photographer at a Boston television station.

When he isn't reporting the news, Craig can be found taking on new adventures with his two daughters or exploring the coast of Maine in his kayak. His other passion is making furniture in his shop or just about anything involving the outdoors.
