ANCHORAGE (AP) -- One man died and another was missing after an Argo amphibious ATV flipped in a creek south of Tyonek Friday night, according to Alaska State Troopers.

The ATV capsized about 10 p.m. Friday in Nikolai Creek, west of Tyonek, as three men were trying to cross the creek in it, troopers said. None of the men had a life jacket.

Scott Peters, 21, of Anchorage was able to get to the bank and walk to Tyonek for help. Troopers were notified the following morning.

Searchers from Tyonek recovered the body of Michael Constantine, 38, of Tyonek on Saturday.

Another Tyonek man, Daniel Standifer Jr., 34, was still missing and the search was suspended, troopers said.

Tyonek is on the east side of Cook Inlet about 50 miles west of Anchorage.
