Volunteers find second Harding Lake body 7-07

FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - Searchers have recovered the body of one of
two people, including one from Illinois, who went missing on an
Interior lake during the Memorial Day weekend.

The body of Travis Alexander, 19, of Fort Yukon was found Saturday.

Still missing is Kathy Garrigan, 24, of the Chicago suburb of Oak Park.

Alexander, Garrigan and Liza Lomando, 20, were last seen alive May 27
in a canoe on Harding Lake about 45 miles south of Fairbanks.

The body of Lomando was pulled from the lake that night. The canoe
was recovered on shore.

The three worked in Nenana for Tribal Civilian Community Corps, which
is affiliated with AmeriCorps and the Tanana Chiefs Conference.

Since the official search was called off, the nonprofit Tanana Chiefs
Conference has sponsored efforts to recover the bodies of Alexander
and Garrigan.

As many as 13 boats, two with sonar equipment, were expected to scour
the lake over the next few days, said Ginger Placeres, TCC
spokeswoman.

About 75 percent of the shoreline of the 2,500-acre lake is lined
with cabins or homes and its waters are popular with skiers and
fishermen. Searchers over the weekend made a plea for boaters to give
the search area a wide berth.

"People are still jet-skiing out there and sail boating and playing
out on the water," said Tanana Chiefs spokeswoman Ginger Placeres.
"I'm sure there is going to be more of that because of the Fourth of
July."
