Alaska State Trooper have located a Fairbanks father and his two young sons, who went missing on Monday, according to an updated release.
The three were found alive by rescue personnel upstream from the Nordale boat launch in Fairbanks.
“All three were transported to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital to be checked out and treated for what are believed to be exposure-related issues,” troopers wrote.
Alaska State Troopers are asking residents of the Chena Hot Springs and surrounding areas to be on the look out for 28-year-old Johnathon Eyre, and his two sons, Johnathon “LJ”, 7, and Jaxson, 4.
On Monday, troopers first received a report that the three of them were missing. They were last known to be at their home, located near mile 12 of Chena Hot Springs Road, on Saturday, troopers said.
When state law enforcement went to the home Monday, they said they found no sign of the man or of his two children. Troopers said they returned to the area the next day, and a search of the woods and river was underway.
Troopers are asking anyone who lives in that area to check buildings, or areas people could hide.
AST urged anyone who has any information about their whereabouts to contact them immediately at 907-451-5100.
