Posted: July 20, 2012 - 1:27pm  |  Updated: July 20, 2012 - 7:46pm

Alaska State Troopers spokesperson Megan Peters said that the Seward Highway has been reopened Friday afternon following an investigation by the Alaska State Troopers and the Anchorage Police Department into an alleged kidnapping and carjacking which started in Anchorage earlier in the day.

Troopers had closed the highway from Mile 69.5 to Mile 73, in the area of Turnagain Pass, to search for a suspect. The victim was able to escape, however the suspect is believed to be armed and at large in the area of the Hope cutoff. Authorities are encouraging individuals to stay out of the area and to not stop for hitchhikers.

According to troopers, the suspect is described as a white adult male, approximately 6 feet tall, about 40 years old with a shaved head. He was last seen wearing a black tank top, black pants and carrying a blue and white windbreaker. The suspect has a black and red tattoo on his left shoulder.
