DILLINGHAM (AP) -- The body of a fisherman who disappeared in the Egegik River Aug. 2 was found Saturday night, Alaska State Troopers said.
Eric Larson, 24, was last seen setting his net in the Egegik River. When his skiff was found the next day, there was no sign of Larson. Winds at the time were described as gusty, creating unstable conditions on the river.
Trooper Chris Thompson of Dillingham said Sunday he did not know where or when Larson's body was found. Troopers in King Salmon who recovered the body did not immediately return a phone call.
Larson lived in Bountiful, Utah and was a senior at Brigham Young University.
