Details of Disappearance

Stringer was last seen in Juneau, Alaska at 9:00 p.m. on December 5, 2017. He and another man, James Cole, were aboard a ten-foot skiff in the Gastineau Channel with a third man, two women and a dog when the skiff took on water and capsized. The two women swam to the dock and one of the men was rescued by the Coast Guard, and the dog also survived, but Stringer and Cole disappeared without a trace.

A search of the Gastineau Channel turned up no sign of either of the missing men. They are presumed drowned.
