FRYE ISLAND — The Maine Warden Service and the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office recovered the body of 29-year-old Durward Worster, of Gorham, who drowned after jumping off a cliff here last week.

Worster and friends were diving from the cliffs of Frye’s Leap on Sebago Lake around 3:30 p.m. on June 20, when Worster was seen jumping from one of the ledges, according to Corporal John MacDonald of the Maine Warden Service.

Cpl. MacDonald said friends witnessed Worster hit the water, but he did not resurface.

Worster's friends immediately began looking for him and called 9-1-1. The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office Dive Team recovered his body at the base of the ledges at 6 p.m. that evening, according to MacDonald.

MacDonald said Game Warden Mike Pierre will lead the investigation for the Maine Warden Service.

The cliffs of Frye’s Leap are private property and posted NO TRESPASSING. The case remains under investigation.

Assisting in the search was Game Warden Sergeant Jason Luce, Warden Neal Wykes, Cumberland County Sheriff’s Detective Sergeant James Estabrook, Raymond Fire and Rescue, and the Portland Water District.
