 I think I've seen this movie before

Perhaps he could break the doldrums with the occasional bottle of chianti.

Does he have a knife with a compass on it?

If he really is a survivalist, the cops aren't going to find him.  We have some very large forests, google map here.

"David Durham seemed especially struck by a recently released movie about aliens invading a remote Alaskan town, making its resident disappear."

Any idea what movie?

You still have to know about where to send the helo (or drone) and conditions need to be somewhat favorable.  They can't loiter forever and forests are big places.

Unfortunately, your link just went to a generic page (koin.com) with no apparent reference to the story mentioned.

    I prefer to think he's living large somewhere.

From the Wiki page Iím going to guess he didnít survive the night of the shooting. 

Gunsmith - curious why you hope heís living large somewhere?  From what I can tell he shot a cop totally unprovoked and then endangered many lives with a high speed chase, then tossed his dog out the window of a still moving vehicle.  He seems to have been suffering some substantial psychiatric problems as well.

its been ten yrs, iirc the initial stories were quite different then the wiki page.
he tossed his dog because he didn't want the dog to be injured/killed in a gun fight.
but you're right about the cop - I had totally forgot about that - I thought he had just escaped an unfair speed trap - i had not recalled him shooting a cop.
I remembered incorrectly, I thought they shot at him first and he returned fire but that no one was hurt.

Sorry to any L.E out there.
