CORDOVA, Alaska (AP) - The body of a 32-year-old Minnesota man missing east of Cordova, Alaska, has been recovered.

Scott Bell of St. Paul was found Tuesday by searchers.

The Coast Guard on Tuesday asked Alaska State Troopers to assist in an aerial search for Bell, who was reported missing near Controller Bay.

Troopers were told Bell was last seen Monday night and that he may have been using a kayak.

Bell’s body was found at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday on a sand bar.

The body has been sent to the state medical examiner for an autopsy.
