The investigation remains open, and Jimino will be transported to the State Medical Examiner’s Office to determine a cause of death.

Jimino was found at approximately 9:00 a.m. by a game warden who was searching area ATV trails for signs of Jimino. The Maine Warden Service was searching the Naples/Otisfield area with the help of Cumberland County’s Sheriff’s Office, the Naples Fire Department and the Casco Fire Department.

Jimino was last in contact with friends on the evening of Thursday, September 7. He stated that he was out riding his ATV. He did not show up for work on Friday the 8th or Monday the 11th of September.

Wardens, sheriffs, and fire department personnel searched ATV trails Monday evening (September 11th) after being notified of Jimino’s disappearance. Heavy rains and darkness lead to the search being suspended last night but searchers including law enforcement and fire fighters resumed searching this morning at 7:00 a.m.
