Tensions are brewing in Dover, Tennessee as the family of a missing hunter continues their search for answers. Liz Keel says her Tennessee home has been very busy in the last week as friends and family have been making phone calls in hopes of helping her find her husband, Steve Keel. 

Steve Keel disappeared on August 27th while hunting outside of Deadhorse, Alaska. Keel is a marine veteran and avid hunter that annually travels across the country to hunt. He was excited to be caribou hunting in Alaska. However, on August 27th, his hunting partner reported him missing. His wife, Liz, found out the following day that her husband had gone missing. 

“My heart dropped into my toes and I just thought, oh my gosh, this can not be possible,” said Keel’s wife. 

Search Continues For Missing Caribou Hunter In Alaska
Steve Keel has been missing for a week now. He was last seen going to grab food from the camp stash, but never came back.

According to the Keel family, Steve had allegedly gone to grab some food and never returned back to the campsite. Liz Keel says that her husband had already been missing for 30 hours before a search and rescue team was deployed.

A week later, and the family is still without answers. In hopes of getting some things done on the ground, Keel’s oldest two sons jumped on a plane a few days ago headed to Alaska to aid in the search for their father. Mrs. Keel says her son’s plane tickets are open-ended, and the two will stay in Alaska until they find answers in the search for their father.  

Liz Keel asks that if anyone has information that might lead to the whereabouts of her husband, please contact her via Facebook.
