Kotzebue, Alaska (KINY) A missing man was found dead not far from his camp site Tuesday.
A dispatch from Alaska State Troopers said Jared Walker, 32, was found near Jones Camp about six miles north of Kotzebue. A family member apparently made the discovery. Troopers also report that Walker had been on a camping trip near the mouth of the Noatak River, not far from where his body was found.
A search began Friday after it was reported that Mr. Walker was seven hours late from returning. An autopsy is planned in the case.
