A Silver Alert issued for a missing Fairbanks man was cancelled after a family friend found him dead along the Elliot Highway Monday night.

Robert “Andy” O’Grady was reported missing on Dec. 3 by his daughter, who said he hadn’t been seen or heard from since the night before when he left a friend’s home in his Chevrolet Silverado. Around 9 p.m. on Monday, a family friend was searching for O’Grady and spotted his truck down a steep embankment near mile 24, according to an Alaska State Trooper dispatch.

“The truck was upside down and O’Grady was located deceased inside the truck,” troopers wrote.

Troopers investigated the crash, along with the State Medical Examiner’s office.

O’Grady’s next of kin has been notified of his death.
