Search underway for Brevig Mission man missing

ANCHORAGE — Alaska State Troopers say searchers have found the clothing of a Brevig Mission man who has been missing for nearly one week, but no other sign of him has turned up.

KTUU says 21-year-old Clarence Ray Olanna was last seen by his family last Tuesday.

Troopers say Olanna’s clothing was found the following day on the shore near the western Alaska village.

The search for Olanna has involved boats, four-wheelers and an Alaska Army National Guard helicopter. Gusty winds prevented boaters from searching the waters on Saturday, and people on all-terrain vehicles searched from the village to Lost River.

The search continued on Sunday.
