Search resumes for missing Missouri man in Alaska

ANCHORAGE — The search for a 71-year-old Missouri man has entered its third day with dozens of people participating.

KTUU reports (http://is.gd/qp221D) the search for Jerry Warner resumed Tuesday morning.

He reportedly left a recreational vehicle he and his girlfriend parked at the Willow Creek Resort, about 50 miles north of Anchorage, on Sunday for a solo fishing trip on Willow Creek.

He was carrying a fishing pole and a walking stick, but no cellphone, weapon and little or no food.

An Alaska State Troopers helicopter provided an aerial search Monday, and eight dog teams were deployed in in the area. About 40 people took part, and the Matanuska-Susitna Borough provided boats for the search.
