The article said he went out for a hike at around 7:30 or 8 pm. Would that be late for a hike? I need to check on the resort to get a better idea of how remote it is.
I have a lot of questions. He was traveling alone? Was he traveling for business? Was he familiar with the area?

I'm about to sit down to dinner but wanted to say my husband and I have skied at Alyeska and driven around that area and Anchorage, and north to Denali. While Alyeska is a resort town, it is small and remote. Simply gorgeous! Mountains go on forever. An evening hike this time of year would be lovely, plenty of time before it gets dark if you leave around 7:30 pm. But you definitely need to be aware of the wildlife, including grizzlies.
Also, Fairbanks is 400 miles away from Alyeska.
I will check in later with more details about the area.

I had a busy week and didn't get back to this case until tonight. I can't believe he is still missing! The latest article I found with a quick search has some more details:
Unless he purposely disappeared, I fear he is no longer alive.

Bumping with updated news from yesterday. He is still missing, but they are scaling back the search. I notice a relative has posted a few times in the comments. I feel so sad for this family. They must feel so helpless.
