ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- The body of a Craig man missing since Sept. 15 has been found in ocean water east of Ketchikan.

The Anchorage Daily Newsreports a boater Thursday spotted the body of 24-year-old Garrett Hagan in Behm Canal near Fox Point about 30 miles south of the Chickamin River.

Hagan had hunted with 51-year-old Adrian Knopps of Grand Ledge, Mich.

Hagan was last seen on a 7-foot skiff loaded with 600 pounds of bear meat and towing a kayak that carried a heavy bear hide.

He was heading for the 44-foot Abundance anchored three miles off the mouth of the Chickamin.

A sightseeing cruise boat spotted the Abundance adrift Sunday.
Knopps was rescued on shore after a seven-day ordeal without survival year. He was treated for severe hypothermia.
