JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A celebration of life has been planned for a Juneau hiker who went missing earlier this year.

The ceremony honoring Sharon Buis is scheduled for Monday evening in Juneau.

The 48-year-old Buis went missing in late May. The experienced outdoorswoman did not show up for a scheduled hike and her car was found at the Mount Roberts trailhead.

Searches of trails in the area were conducted by the Alaska State Troopers and volunteers. Juneau police have kept the matter open as a missing person’s case.

The Juneau Empire reports (https://bit.ly/1taxEPC ) that Buis’ family has invited community members who knew Buis and those involved in the search to Monday’s ceremony.
