Family Frantically Searching For Tennessee Hunter Missing In Alaska

Loved ones in Dover, Tennessee, are holding out hope experienced oudoorsman Steve Keel, 61, is found safe after he disappeared during an Alaska hunting trip with a friend. Here’s more from Nashville TV station WKRN:

They arrived in Fairbanks on Aug. 20 and then drove almost 500 miles north to Deadhorse. According to his wife, Keel and his friend were in constant contact with their families throughout the trip.

Keel’s hunting friend told his wife that he left the campsite to go get supplies at a location where they stored their caribou meat. He was never seen again.

“He knows how to survive, it’s just a mystery,” Keel’s wife Liz said.

According to the report, Keel’s sons, also avid outdoorsmen, have traveled to Alaska and have joined in the search. Here’s hoping for a happy ending.
