KOTZEBUE (AP) -- Alaska State Troopers have suspended their search for a man missing nearly two weeks from the northwest Alaska village of Selawik.
Timothy Snyder, 25, has been missing since Jan. 30. Troopers said Snyder had apparently been drinking alcohol when he took off on a snowmachine. He was not wearing heavy clothing and it was not clear where he was headed. The search was made difficult by snowfall that covered snowmachine tracks.
Troopers and teams from surrounding villages have searched for the better part of two weeks. Local search crews were expected to continue the effort, troopers said.
