State and federal authorities have reopened an investigation into a small plane that vanished in 2008 near Juneau, carrying a deputy commissioner for Alaska and his son, after wreckage was discovered Wednesday on an island south of Juneau, an official said.
The remains of Kyle Stevens, 31, have been found. Missing after taking off from Russian Mission last week, Stevens’ body was recovered Friday in the Yukon River near the village. The crashed plane was found days earlier.
Coast Guard helicopter and cutter crews rescued two people and three dogs Friday near Montague Island in Prince William Sound. The Coast Guard dispatched a MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter and the Cutter Chandeleur after a mayday call came in over VHF radio.
