ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Alaska State Troopers say the search for a missing Missouri man has been suspended.

Troopers say no clues have been found on the whereabouts of 71-year-old Jerry Warner of Richland, Missouri.

Warner went missing Aug. 3 after he reportedly left a recreational vehicle he and his girlfriend had parked at the Willow Creek Resort, about 50 miles north of Anchorage.

At the time, Warner was heading for a solo fishing trip at Willow Creek. He was carrying a fishing pole and a walking stick, but no cellphone, no weapon and little or no food.

Troopers say that any clues arising in the future would be analyzed and appropriate resources would be deployed.
