Troopers to rescue an injured hunter Saturday morning. Officials say friends
of 56-year-old Arthur David reported him missing Friday on Prince of Wales

Coffman Cove, and didn't return to a meeting point on schedule.
The Coast Guard launched a helicopter rescue crew to search the area. A
volunteer search-and-rescue team on the ground found David at about 6:30
