ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaska State Troopers say searchers have found the body of a 48-year-old Shageluk (SHA’-guh-luk) man who went missing after he jumped out of a boat.

Troopers say they were notified Sunday evening that Robert Demientieff was found dead in the Innoko River.

According to troopers, Demientieff jumped into the river about 7 miles from the western Alaska village. Troopers were notified of the incident late Friday night, when locals began searching for the missing man.

Troopers flew to the village on Saturday to conduct an investigation and help with the search.

Troopers say Demientieff had not been wearing a personal flotation device. His body was sent to the state medical examiner’s office.
