Benjamin Troy George

Alakanuk teen’s body recovered

On August 24, at 8:30, State Troopers in St. Mary's were notified that the body of Benjamin Troy George, 17, of Alakanuk, had been recovered several miles down river from where George was last seen.

A search and rescue effort began on Aug. 7 after it was reported that George had dove into the Yukon River to help a juvenile female who had fallen out of the boat, but never resurfaced.

The body was sent to the State Medical Examiners Office in Anchorage, AK. Alcohol was involved.
