BEAVER, Alaska (AP) - Alaska State Troopers are searching for two hunters from the village of Beaver who disappeared after their boat overturned on the Yukon River.

A third person in the boat, 45-year-old Kim Andon of Rampart, walked along the river for three days and was found Wednesday about 2 miles (3.2 kilometers) downriver from Beaver.

Andon says she was with 56-year-old Clifford Adams and 38-year-old Ai Adams on their way back from a hunting trip Sunday when their boat overturned about 6 miles (9.7 kilometers) downriver from Beaver.

Andon says she was the only one wearing a life jacket.

She was transported to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital.

A trooper helicopter searched for the missing men.

Boaters are also searching.
