A Port Graham man missing since Nov. 30 has been found alive.

The U.S. Coast Guard announced they had ended their search for 34-year-old Ryan Meganack after Alaska State Troopers found him safe on Dec. 2 near the village of Port Graham.

According to an Alaska State Trooper Dispatch released on Dec. 2, troopers received a report that Meganack was hiding outside Port Graham. Meganack was reportedly in violation of his conditions of release by not being with his third party custodian. He was taken into custody and remanded to Homer Jail.

Meganack was reported missing around 2 p.m. Nov. 30. He reportedly left Port Graham in an 18-foot skiff heading toward Passage Island. A good Samaritan vessel found Meganack’s skiff, swamped, near the southeast side of Passage Island.

Multiple search crews with the U.S. Coast Guard, Alaska State Troopers, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the village of Port Graham searched an area roughly 15 miles by 11 miles from English Bay to Cook Inlet, looking for Meganack.
