Alaska State Troopers, Anchorage police and park rangers are looking for a man believed to be missing near the Eagle River Nature Center.

According to Troopers, Neil Guggenmos, 47, of Palmer was reported missing late Tuesday night. His vehicle was located Wednesday morning in the center parking lot.

Anchorage police said there was no indication of foul play or a bear attack and said Guggenmos even paid for a parking pass at the center, which is located at the end of Eagle River Road and provides a gateway to Chugach State Park.

Peters said Guggenmos is familiar with the trails in the area. He’s described as 6 feet tall and 260 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. Troopers are asking people to avoid the area while the search is underway.
