Portland police said the body of a Portland man who was reported missing during Tuesday’s snowstorm was found Wednesday night.

Canine teams from the Maine Warden Service and Portland police helped searchers recover the body of 50-year-old Robert Smith of Luke Street around 5:30 p.m., Lt. Robert Martin, a Portland Police Department spokesman, said in a statement.

The manner and cause of Smith’s death has not been determined, pending an examination by the State Medical Examiner’s Office, Martin said.

Smith was last seen by a neighbor around 10 a.m. Tuesday entering woods at the end of his street. The end of Luke Street, located in Portland’s Riverton neighborhood, leads to a foot path that connects to the Riverton Interurban Trail.

“Robert suffers from depression and was drinking at the time of his disappearance,” Martin said in a news release. “He left his cellphone and his wallet at his home.”

He was last seen wearing a fluorescent yellow coat and matching pants.
