KUAC-(Fairbanks) -A man missing off the Parks Highway north of Healy has been found dead. 33 year old Rob Gage of Seward was an Alaska railroad employee living in Healy. He’d been missing since last weekend. His truck was found Wednesday night at a Parks Highway trailhead at mile 275, near Clear Sky Lodge, north of Healy. That triggered a search effort that included family, friends, volunteers and Alaska State Troopers A Facebook page was set up to share information on Gage’s disappearance, and in a post put up early this morning, Gage’s aunt Linda Crandall said his body was found over night. Gage was a life long Alaskan, a Marine and experienced outdoorsman. The family has requested privacy, and is not releasing any additional information at this time.
