BREAKING NEWS: Authorities searching Chena for drowning victim.

Authorities will resume their search today at the Chena River for an apparent drowning victim, who they say is also tied to a burglary and theft incident.

In a news release, Alaska State Troopers say just after 7pm they received a report of a man heard screaming from the river.

The incident occurred Sunday evening.

When the female caller and her husband went to investigate, they saw a man in the river and a yellow kayak floating near him.

When they went to rescue him, they say he was gone.

Troopers conducted an intense search for the man, identified as 33 year old Joshua Graham, but were unsuccessful.

Later that Sunday evening, another Fairbanks resident reported that he had returned from a four day work trip, and found his home had been broken into, and items

were missing.

Troopers say items in the kayak on the river matched those the man identified as stolen.

They say it appears Graham had broken into the man's home and had been living there for an extended period of time, and then left taking jewelry and other items.

Troopers are saying Graham was not wearing a flotation device when he went into the water.

They say they will evaluate their search efforts later on Monday, and proceed from there.

This is a developing story.
