The Coast Guard launched an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter yesterday to locate two hunters who had been reported missing. The pair had left Kenai in a 21-foot skiff on Tuesday and were supposed to return the next day. Family members became concerned when they hadn’t heard anything by Thursday morning.
The hunters were discovered after two hours of searching in good condition, with no signs of distress.
The Coast Guard applauded them for leaving detailed plans with family members, but asked that hunters inform their families if plans change.
