Troopers seek Fairbanks kayaker last seen on Chena River

    FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) — Alaska State Troopers are asking the public for information on a Fairbanks kayaker who has not been seen since Thursday.

    Troopers say 36-year-old Sean Murphy left Fairbanks on the Chena River.

    His destination was not known.

    Troopers say he likely paddled downstream to the Tanana (TA-nah-nah) River.

    Murphy is Caucasian, 6-foot-1 (185.4 centimeters), about 200 pounds (91 kilograms), with short- to medium-length hair and stubble facial hair.

    He was in a red, single-seat kayak.
