ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaska State Troopers say a man and woman reported missing from a campsite off the Denali Highway have been found dead.

The bodies of the pair were found inside a dilapidated trailer in the area after troopers heard noises coming from the vehicle Sunday afternoon. Troopers say there was no response when communication was attempted.

The names of the man and woman were not immediately released. Troopers spokeswoman Beth Ipsen says the bodies are being sent to the state medical examiner’s office for positive identification and to determine cause of death.

Troopers received a report that Friday evening that the pair was missing from the campsite around mile 79 of the Denali Highway. Troopers say they found signs suggesting gunfire associated with the pair’s vehicle and camper trailer.
