ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A man from the village of Crooked Creek, missing on a snowmachine trip, has been found safe.
Norman Macar, 30, left Crooked Creek on Monday, headed for Bethel. He was traveling by snowmachine on the Kuskokwim River.
He was reported missing on Tuesday, when he failed to check in with his wife. Volunteers from Aniak, Kalskag and Tuluksak launched a search.
