UPDATE 5/22/23: On May 20, 2023, at 8:26 pm, the Alaska State Troopers were notified that a citizen located human remains in the area of Funny River. Troopers responded to the area and located partial human remains, firearms, and personal effects. Troopers presumably identified the remains as 62-year-old Soldotna resident Ronald Beyering. Beyering was a wanted fugitive in the Soldotna area after he shot at a residence and set it on fire in October 2022. He fled the area after Troopers were called, and despite a multi-day manhunt, Troopers were unable to locate him. His remains were sent to the State Medical Examiner’s Office for positive identification and autopsy. The investigation remains open and active. Next of kin have been notified.
UPDATE: October 31, 2022. Due to an alert citizen calling Alaska State Troopers in Soldotna, the Ford Expedition was located off Funny River Road. Ronald Beyering’s whereabouts is still unknown. Troopers continue to follow up on any leads as they come in. Alaska State Troopers appreciate the public’s continued assistance with this case. Anyone that sees Beyering should not approach him as he is still considered armed and dangerous but should immediately call Soldotna Dispatch Center at (907) 262-4453 or 911.
