A search from the air and on the ground has failed to find a snowmachiner missing since last weekend on the Seward Peninsula.

Alaska State Troopers say 22-year-old Kenneth Lee of Teller left Brevig Mission and didn't make it to Teller, which is about five miles across Port Clarence.

KTUU-TV reports 44-year-old Barbara Scholten died in the same area last month after the snowmachine on which she was a passenger broke through the ice.
