Sitka hunter missing for days found dead after apparent fall
SITKA -- The body of a 41-year-old Sitka man missing on a hunting trip
has been found. The Sitka Sentinel reports the body of Bruce Robertson was
found Monday in a steep ravine on the east side of Harbor Mountain.
Alaska State Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters says it appeared Robertson
fell into the ravine and died of his injuries. His body was transported to
Anchorage for an autopsy.
Searchers began looking for Robertson on Friday morning.
Sitka Mountain Rescue chief Don Kluting says Robertson's body was found
near the Cascade Creek drainage and the recovery required ropes and
harnesses because it was not an area that could be reached on foot.
