Missing Railroad Employee’s Body Found Near Healy

A man missing off the Parks Highway north of Healy has been found dead, the victim of apparent suicide. 33-year-old John Robert Gage of Seward was an Alaska Railroad employee, who’d been living in Healy. He went missing last weekend.  His truck was found Wednesday night at a Parks Highway trailhead about 30 miles north of Healy. The discovery triggered a search by family, friends and State Troopers. Gage’s body was found early this morning and Troopers report that all signs indicate he died of self in inflicted gunshot. Gage was a lifelong Alaskan, and a Marine.  His family has requested privacy, and is not releasing any additional information at this time.
