ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The body of a 74-year-old Platinum man missing for nearly a month has been found in western Alaska.

Anchorage television station KTUU (https://is.gd/E1bPqX) reports the body of Henry Williams was found by a family friend Monday.

Williams’ daughter, Georgianna, says his body was found near Carter Spit.

Alaska State Troopers say Williams disappeared Feb. 27 after he left Goodnews Bay for Platinum on a snowmobile.

An extensive air and ground search was launched after Williams failed to arrive at Platinum.



Troopers said ice conditions and deteriorating weather limited the search effort. The search was suspended almost a week after Williams went missing.
