Search for two Exito Crew-members – suspended

Sad news, the Coast Guard on Thursday suspended the search for the two missing crewmen from M/V Exito.

After the sinking of M/V Exito 14 miles northeast of Dutch Harbor, Alaska, Tuesday evening, three of the five people on board the vessel were located by the good Samaritan crew of the Afognac Strait. The men were brought on board the vessel and transferred to Dutch Harbor.

The crews of Coast Guard Cutter Alex Haley and its forward deployed MH-65 Dolphin helicopter had continued the search for the remaining two crewmen Wednesday night and Thursday.

“The decision to suspend a search is never an easy one to make and is done with great care and deliberation after thoroughly evaluating our search efforts and the situation,” said Capt. Laura Dickey, chief of staff of the 17th Coast Guard District. “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the missing men.”

The cause of the vessel sinking is under investigation.
