Still no signs in ongoing search for missing Chevak woman
The weekend search for 35-year-old Sara Nicholas didn't turn up any sign of her, according to Chevak search and rescue officials.
On Monday, they said people searched along the coastline and the halfway point between Chevak and Hooper Bay.
Last week, the search and rescue group asked for volunteers to continue looking for Nicholas in the Western Alaska community of Chevak.
Clifford Paniyak, co-coordinator of Chevak City Search & Rescue, said the search effort is unlikely on Friday night, but the group is sought volunteer searchers for Saturday, Sunday and Monday. There wasn't immediate word of snow and ice conditions in the potential search areas.
Alaska State Troopers issued a missing person bulletin for Nicholas and say her family last saw her on March 18.
Community members have held prayer walks for Nicholas in the weeks after her disappearance.
Paniyak says anyone with information about Nicholas should contact state troopers or their closest law enforcement agency.
