ANCHORAGE, Alaska Officials at Denali National Park in Alaska are looking for people who may have traveled in the area of a huge landslide that fell on a road frequented by summer tourists.

The slide was discovered Oct. 23, and park spokeswoman Kris Fister says the last known time anyone was in that area was Oct. 12.

The landslide covered a 110-foot stretch of the popular Denali Park Road that was closed at the time of the discovery.

The road was cleared as crews took advantage of unseasonably mild weather. Snow has since fallen in the area.

It remains unclear, however, if instability of the terrain will affect visitors next summer.

Park officials say the area will be assessed next spring before the road opens to traffic.
