DNA links Alaska Natives to man found in glacier
An Alaska Native woman confirmed she is related to a man found in a glacier in Canada.

Marilyn Doyle of Juneau is one of 17 people in Alaska and Canada who have been linked to the man named ''Long Ago Person Found.'' The man was about 200 to 300 years old.

Researchers have tested the DNA of 250 people for a match with the man. A similar effort is ongoing with the remains of 10,300-year-old man who was found in Alaska.
