ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Three people are missing after authorities say their four-wheeler was recovered from the Kuskokwim River.

Alaska State Troopers, in a dispatch, say the missing - two men and a woman - were reported overdue at about 5 p.m. Friday. Search efforts also began Friday.

Bethel Search and Rescue, on its website, said a set of all-terrain vehicle tracks were seen leading to an open hole. It said a four-wheeler, matching the description of the vehicle that the missing individuals were using, was recovered from beneath newly formed ice.

KTUU reports (https://bit.ly/1uFmL8f) the search and rescue agency previously issued warnings about travel on the river due to thin ice and areas of open water.
