Body Found by Haines, Searchers Look for Sitka Man
The body of a missing Haines man has been located, and a separate search for another man missing in Southeast continues.
ANCHORAGE- The body of a missing Haines man has been located, and a separate search for another man missing in Southeast continues.
The body of 26-year-old Jonathan Ward was found Wednesday morning near the Southeast State Fairgrounds in Haines. He was last seen early Friday morning and reported missing on Tuesday.
Alaska State Troopers don't suspect foul play, but believe alcohol was a factor. His body will be sent to Anchorage for an autopsy.
Troopers also continue to search for 19-year-old Scott Falzerano Jr. in the Indian River Valley area of Sitka.
He was last seen mid-day Monday when he went into the woods behind his home. Troopers believe he's lost and don't suspect foul play in this case, either.
