Kyle Anderson shot himself Friday night as Bristol Bay Borough police officers attempted to stop his vehicle.
Searchers planned to continue looking Monday for Reanna "Rose" Anderson, who was reported missing Friday by her mother.

A spokeswoman for the family, Heather Reader, told the Anchorage Daily News ( that Kyle Anderson reported seeing his wife Sept. 17 at their home in King Salmon, a community of 350 on the Naknek River about 15 miles upriver from Naknek.
Reanna Anderson grew up in Naknek and graduated from Bristol Bay Borough schools in 2007.
She moved to Seattle after high school and took an internship with Ocean Beauty Seafood Inc., but returned to Alaska and married. The couple had one young daughter.
Reanna Anderson worked at the PenAir airport ticket counter. When she missed work for two days in a row Friday, PenAir called her mother. Her mother called police.

Reader declined to discuss the couple or the state of their marriage.
Teresa Coghill, a Bristol Bay Borough Police Department spokeswoman, said Sunday that the investigation into Reanna Anderson's disappearance continues.
Reader said the town has helped search for Anderson.
"This community has pulled together," she said. "It's amazing."
She would not have gone away without her daughter, Reader said.
"She's just a really strong person. And her daughter is everything to her," Reader said. She'd never go away without talking to her daughter or knowing where she was."
