ANCHORAGE, Alaska — State troopers say they have positively identified the remains of a body found at the mouth of Mission Creek. The state medical examiner's office confirmed that the remains are those of U.S. Customs agent Charles Collins of Eagle River.
Collins, 56, went missing on July 13 while he was on duty operating a government vehicle. The vehicle had gone off the road near Mile 114 of the Taylor Highway during heavy flooding and was found submerged in O'Brien Creek.
Collins had been considered missing since that time.
