On Dec. 2, a 600-foot landslide, triggered by heavy rainfall in the days preceding, destroyed the home of David Simmons, leaving Simmons and his tenant, Jenae Larson missing. The Alaska State Troopers ended search efforts on Monday due to ongoing slope instability in the area, which prevented an on-foot search of the debris field.
