Hope dims as the search for Robert Nick goes into its ninth day. The 25-year-old was last known to be traveling on foot from Bethel to Napakiak and wearing all black.
At this point there is growing concern that he may not be found alive. A team of 16 searchers, seven from Bethel Search and Rescue and nine from Napakiak Search and Rescue, are concentrating on areas where animals may have been. They searched daily throughout the weekend and their efforts continue. If you have any information about the missing man, please contact the Bethel Police Department at 907-543-3781.
