Troopers find Fort Wainwright soldier’s body in car

FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) – Alaska State Troopers say they found the body of a Fort Wainwright soldier who had been missing for nearly a week.

The Fairbanks Daily News Miner reports Alaska State Troopers were at Harding Lake on Saturday investigating a report of an apparently abandoned vehicle.

A statement by the Alaska State Troopers says the vehicle belonged to Mason Heimer. His body was found in the vehicle.

Troopers say no foul play is suspected.

Heimer’s next of kin has been notified. His body has been sent to the Alaska State Medical Examiner’s office for an autopsy.

Heimer’s father, Doug, travelled from Texas to help local law enforcement agencies look for his 22-year-old son.

He says Heimer lived on Fort Wainwright, where he was a construction engineer and had been stationed for eight months.
