Challenge Prelude Crewman lost at sea

The Coast Guard has suspended their search Monday, for the 22-year-old male crewmember who reportedly fell overboard from the motor vessel Challenge Prelude, 110 miles south of Sand Point, Alaska.

Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak aircrews in coordination with the crew of the Challenge Prelude conducted a thorough search of the area, spanning 673 square miles for a combined 14 hours.

The master of the Challenge Prelude notified Coast Guard at approximately 2:17 p.m., Sunday, that the 22-year-old seaman was missing at around 1:25 p.m. The master also reported that they then proceeded to sound a general emergency and conducted crew and space accountability. The master then followed his reciprocal track line back to where the crew member was last seen, and verified that all lifesaving equipment was accounted for onboard the Challenge Prelude during this time.

The Coast Guard saturated the search area in hopes of finding the 22-year-old.

Capt. Darran McLenon, District 17 chief of response offered “Our deepest condolences go out to his family and friends.”
