ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Three hunters on snowmachines were rescued Friday night after bad weather separated the group. Alaska State Troopers say the snowmachiners were hunting just east of Dillingham, near the Little McClung River.
Bobby McCarr, 57, his 16-year-old son Joshua and 58-year-old Curtis Abalama were hunting in the area when Joshua was separated from the other two men.
He was able to notify his mother, who contacted troopers. Ground search-and-rescue teams from Dillingham and Aleknagik began a search. At about 11:40 p.m., a break in the weather allowed the searchers and missing party to see each other's headlights.
The groups returned safely to Dillingham.
