A man is missing after friends say he got drunk and walked away from a campsite near Kenai Lake.
Daniel Compeau, 34, was reported missing at 11:36 a.m. on Saturday after his friends were unable to find him in the area near Moose Pass, according to an Alaska State Trooper dispatch posted on Sunday.
Troopers, along with the Moose Pass Fire Department and U.S. Forestry officials had been searching the area, but the active search has since been suspended.
Troopers spokesperson Megan Peters said no one saw Compeau leave the campsite and a trail of clothes was found between his tent and Kenai Lake.
“The tent was about 20 yards from the lake,” Peters wrote in an email.
Divers have searched the area in the lake and some dragging has occurred, however the amount of debris in the lake makes dragging impractical, Peters wrote. Searchers have also used dogs around the area where Compeau was camping. Peters wrote that he Loveland, Colorado man was not camping in an organized campground.
“None of the man’s gear is missing,” Peters wrote. “No foul play is suspected.”
