    Kenyan student athlete missing in Alaska snowstorm

    (Reuters) - A search team with dogs scoured the woods around the University of Alaska at Anchorage on Monday for a Kenyan student athlete who went missing in a heavy snowstorm, police and school officials said.
    Marko Cheseto, a star runner recruited by the university's cross-country team, was last seen on Sunday evening near the campus library, the school said in a statement. Snow was falling heavily at the time, and officials were concerned that he might have succumbed to exposure.

    "He is likely not dressed for freezing temperatures," the university's statement said.

    A search team was assembled and combed the wooded areas around the campus, including numerous cross-country trails, Lieutenant Dave Parker of the Anchorage Police Department said.
