ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - A search is underway in the village of Nunam Iqua for four children.

Alaska State Troopers say the children went out on a snowmachine ride and were supposed to be back at 1 p.m. on Sunday.

At 6:45 p.m. Alaska State Troopers were alerted and a search began.

AST identified the children as 14-year-old Christopher Johnson, 8-year-old Frank Johnson, 7-year-old Ethan Camille, and 2-year-old Trey Camille.

Helping in the search are helicopters from the Army National Guard and the United States Coast Guard.

Also helping out are search and rescue groups from neighboring villages.

Troopers say blizzard conditions are making it hard to see out there and are hampering search efforts.
