Alaska searchers find missing hiker from Colorado


ANCHORAGE, Alaska – A search team has found a 50-year-old Colorado man who went missing on Afognak Island, north of Kodiak.

The Coast Guard says Todd Miller was found safe late Saturday afternoon about three miles north of the lodge where he had been staying.

Miller reportedly became disorientated while hiking Friday afternoon and continued walking until a search team made up of Miller’s friends and an Alaska State Trooper located him.

Coast Guard helicopter rescue crews conducted two searches Saturday and were preparing to sent a search and rescue team when he was found.

Miller reportedly declined medical treatment. His hometown wasn’t immediately available.
