ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaska State Troopers say human remains found earlier this month on Adak Island are believed to be those of a man missing for more than five years.

KTUU reports (http://is.gd/NVgkU0 ) that personal effects found near the site suggest that the remains are those of 57-year-old Samuel Dee Arrington.

In August 2008, a missing-persons bulletin said Arrington was last seen on July 15 of that year at the head of a trail to Lake Betty, five days after he flew to Adak on a one-way Alaska Airlines ticket and bought camping supplies.

Troopers spokeswoman Beth Ipsen says the remains were discovered in an inland ravine by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service employees working on a bird study.

The remains have not been positively identified.
