Nulato man found dead near Koyukuk

Posted: Wednesday, April 10, 2002

GALENA (AP) -- A man from the Yukon River village of Nulato was found dead late Tuesday night.

Alaska State Troopers said Ryan Gregory, 23, had left Nulato Sunday on a snowmachine trip to Galena. Troopers in Galena were notified shortly before 6 p.m. Tuesday that Gregory was missing.

Crews from Galena and Koyukuk launched a search and found Gregory's body at about 10:30 p.m., about five miles upriver from Koyukuk. His body was about three miles from his snowmachine, troopers said.

Troopers said Gregory appears to have died of exposure and alcohol is thought to have contributed to his death. No foul play is suspected, troopers said.
