The Coast Guard suspended its search Friday for a crewman reported overboard from the 190-foot fishing vessel Cape Greig in Ugashik Bay, Alaska.
A Coast Guard Hercules and a helicopter crew and nine good Samaritan vessels searching a total of 13-square miles along the Ugashik Bay shoreline and up the river failed to locate the man.
The alarm was received on Thursday, at approximately 4:27 p.m.
“Our deepest condolences go out to his family during this time of grieving,” said Lt. Stephen Nolan, the command duty officer at District 17 Command Center. “Even though we were unable to find the man, we are thankful that so many good Samaritans were willing to assist for the duration of the search.”
