ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A Stony River man is missing and feared drowned after the snowmachine he was riding went through the ice on the Stony River.
Alaska State Troopers said Wassillie Macar, 53, and Sherman Willis, 53, were traveling on a single snowmachine to Lime Village when the accident occurred at about 8 p.m. Tuesday.
Troopers said Macar was able to get out of the water, but he saw no sign of Willis and ran a mile to Lime Village, where he got help.
Several people traveled back to the river and searched for about an hour, but saw no sign of Willis or the snowmachine.
