  • Details of Disappearance
    In late October, 1953, Albert Kunkel was last seen with Johan Lundgren. The two were traveling by boat and attempting to
    establish a camp north of Little Bear Lake. They were taking supplies across the lake when their boat capsized. Both men
    drowned and their bodies were not recovered despite searching by locals from the area. In 1959, some fishermen at Little
    Bear Lake snagged on an object and brought it to the surface. This was the body of Johan Lundgren. Albert Kunkel or his
    remains have never been located.
