KIVALINA, Alaska (AP) - A Kivalina man whose snowmobile broke through river ice Monday was found safe.

Alaska State Troopers say 29-year-old Danny Foster left the northwest Alaska village to fish on the Wulik River and was reported overdue just before 10 p.m. Monday.

The Northwest Arctic Borough search and rescue coordinator dispatched searchers on snowmobiles, who reported hazardous conditions on the river.

At about 12:45 a.m. Tuesday, they spotted Foster walking on a trail. He was transported to Kivalina in good health.

Kivalina is 80 miles northwest of Kotzebue.
