Officer Gary Wohlfeil and Officer LeRoy Bohuslov were killed in an aircraft accident northwest of Fairwell, Alaska while conducting a low-level caribou survey.

The officers lost contact shortly after noon on March 5th. Their aircraft, Champion 150, was located after a four-day multi-agency search. The investigation found that the plane lost a wing during flight, causing it to nose-dive.

Officer Wohlfeil was an Alaska National Guard veteran and had been with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game for 1.5 years. He was survived by his parents, a brother, and a sister.

Officer Wohlfeil,
On today, the 60th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as when when you served with the National Guard. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
