Crewman overboard, missing from Alaska Mist

The Coast Guard is searching for a person in the water near Dutch Harbor Alaska, Thursday. Missing is 33-year-old Steven Mencer, last seen wearing a neon green pullover rain jacket with orange and black pants.

Mencer was reported missing after failing to report to crew check-in while the Alaska Mist, a 164-foot fishing vessel, was moored at Coastal Transportation Northern Dock, Thursday.

The master of Alaska Mist notified Coast Guard at 8:28 a.m., Thursday. Watchstanders issued an urgent marine information broadcast and directed the launch of aircrews from Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the 17th District command center at (907) 463-2000.
