Man missing since Sunday found

By KTVA CBS 11 News 2:44 PM February 11, 2014

Alaska State Troopers said a plane spotted 28-year-old Jared A. Walker just before 2 p.m. Tuesday

ANCHORAGE – A man who had been missing since Sunday was found Tuesday afternoon, authorities said.

Alaska State Troopers said a plane spotted 28-year-old Jared A. Walker just before 2 p.m. Tuesday. He was seen waving his arms in a creek bed about seven miles northeast of Kiana.

Around 9:25 p.m. Sunday, a search-and-rescue team in Kotzebue notified troopers that Walker had left Kiana around 4 p.m. on an Arctic Cat 1100 XF snowmachine and headed for Selawik, but had not reached his destination as of about 9 p.m., according to a report from Alaska State Troopers.

Located in northwest Alaska, Kiana and Selawik are about 30 miles away from each other.

Calls were made to Selawik, Noorvik and Kotzebue to “most likely homes he would visit,” the report said, but no one said they had seen him.

He was transported out of the area by searchers on snowmachines. He is not injured and troopers said they are waiting to interview him. His family has been contacted.
