More than 100 people gathered Saturday at Unalaska's high school to mourn the death of 18-year-old Alexis Magalong, a senior who was reported missing and later found dead over the weekend. 

Superintendent John Conwell said he'd known Magalong since she was three years old. He remembered her as a "remarkable young lady" and skilled basketball player.

It's been almost a month since a plane crashed at Unalaska's airport, killing one passenger and injuring more than a dozen others.

The accident required a major emergency response involving city staffers and volunteers, members of UniSea's safety team, and many others. While it was a big task for the community, local officials have said they're pretty happy with the effort.
