Troopers seek missing man

Alaska State Troopers in Fairbanks are asking for the public's help in locating an Arizona man who hasn't been seen since Dec. 14.

Keith Stompro, 66, checked into Pike's Waterfront Lodge on Dec. 10 and was scheduled to stay a few days. Hotel personnel contacted Alaska State Troopers on Dec. 20 after no one at the hotel had seen him in days despite his personal belongings, including valuables, being left in the hotel room. Troopers believe Stompro has been in Alaska since the beginning of November.

He rented a car in Anchorage and eventually headed north toward Fairbanks.

While in route, his rental car collided with a herd of caribou on the Parks Highway near Cantwell on Dec. 10. The crash totaled the car. Nonetheless, he managed to find a ride to Fairbanks where he checked into Pikes that day.

He was last seen by hotel cleaning staff on Dec. 14. Stompro is described as 5–feet–9–inches tall, weighing 165 pounds with hazel eyes and graying brown hair.

If anyone has had any contact with Stompro since Dec. 10 or information leading to his whereabouts, please contact Alaska State Troopers in Fairbanks at (907) 451–5100.
