ANCHORAGE — Alaska State Troopers say a 14-year-old boy apparently died of exposure in 50-below temperatures while trying to walk home from a friend’s house Sunday in Kipnuk, about 100 miles southwest of Bethel.

KTUU reports searchers lost track of his footprints in blowing snow with winds up to 70 mph.

The body of Brandon Anaver was found Monday.
