COAST GUARD SUSPENDS SEARCH FOR MISSING HUNTER

Sunday, January 04, 2004

By Elictia Hammond

Officials have suspended their search for a missing 14-year-old hunter today.

The Coast Guard says David Mills disappeared earlier this week during a hunting trip with his father and one other man.

Both the father Rick Mills and companion Gary Davies were found dead just off the North Shore of Kupreanof last week.

After three days of searching the Petty Officer Douglas Green with the Coast Guard says the chances of the teen being found alive are slim.

"Chances for survival in the kind of weather their having in the area are negligible. If there are any further developments of course we will certainly reopen the search but as of right now it is suspended."

Although the Coast Guard called their search off, volunteers from the local village of Kake, headed out again this morning to continue looking for the 14-year-old.
