Alaska State Troopers have found the body of a teenage fisherman who went missing after a commercial skiff overturned near Pilot Point. Another fisherman also died.

Troopers say the body of 17-year-old Casey Burt was found Tuesday evening during a low tide of the Ugashik River.

Burt had been missing since the skiff overturned Sunday. The body of another fisherman, 38-year-old Charles Anthony Voss of Sterling, was found upriver.

The two were among four people in the boat when the craft overturned in 25 mph winds and 4-foot waves. None was wearing a personal flotation device.

Troopers say 47-year-old Earnest Pierce of 9 Mile Falls, Washington, and 24-year-old and Brandon Michael Park of West Richland, Washington, climbed on the overturned skiff and were rescued by other fishing boats.

One person is reported dead and another is still missing after a skiff overturned near Pilot Point in Ugashik Bay on Sunday.  Two other people were rescued.

It’s uncertain why the 26-foot skiff went over. The Coast Guard reported 3-foot seas and 25-knot winds in the area.

An unidentified adult man and a 17-year-old boy tried to swim to shore. The adult was found in the water unresponsive and could not be resuscitated. The teenager is still missing.

Alaska State Troopers say 47-year-old Earnest Pierce of 9 Mile Falls, Washington, and 24-year-old Brandon Michael Park of West Richland, Washington, climbed on the overturned skiff and were rescued by other fishing boats.

A Coast Guard H-60 helicopter and an Alaska State Trooper helicopter were dispatched to look in the area.

The Coast Guard said they suspended their search on Sunday night.
