ANCHORAGE- Family and friends searching for a missing Anchorage man grew concerned when they saw a tweet from police that said a body was found in Spenard.

Their hunch was correct. Police found the body of 31-year-old Aylett Hanson in his black Mazda 5.
Hanson would have turned 32 on Sunday. His death left his family looking for answers.
Hanson's cousin, Brittany Hales, said he was a capable handyman who worked construction jobs in the summer and did odd jobs in the winter.
He was usually accompanied by his black cat, Ninja, who he taught to ride on his shoulder during hikes to Flattop Mountain or Rainbow Valley.
Police have not said how they believe Hanson died.
An autopsy has been ordered.
