ANCHORORAGE (AP) -- Alaska State Troopers were searching Tuesday for two men missing near Sleetmute who may have gone through the ice on the Kuskokwim River.
The two men from Crooked Creek, Allen Fredericks, 37, and Nickoli Peters, 38, had set out on a snowmachine early Monday morning headed toward Sleetmute. When the men failed to return home by later in the day, a family member followed the snowmachine tracks which led to open water on the river, troopers said.
No footprints were seen in the area. Residents of Sleetmute and Crooked Creek searched for the two men and troopers were called in.
