ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A 51-year-old Toksook Bay man was found safe and sound after getting lost on a snowmachine in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta.

Charles Moses was rescued Tuesday, a day after he was reported missing to Alaska State Troopers.

Moses was driving from Toksook Bay to Nunapitchuk. Search parties from those two villages left Tuesday morning, joined by a troopers airplane.

Rescuers found Moses about 5 p.m. about 20 miles south of Kasigluk. Moses apparently got lost after he became disoriented while driving at night, according to troopers.

Moses was not injured.
