Man still missing after going overboard

Searchers will continue looking on Monday for a man who disappeared underwater at the Port of Anchorage.

Two H-60 helicopters from the Coast Guard and the Air Force searched the area after the 28-year old man went missing just before midnight on Sunday night. He reportedly tried to transfer from a skiff to board the tug Sam B, but he fell into the water. The unidentified man was wearing a yellow rain jacket, but he was not wearing a life jacket.

Coast Guard Petty Officer Mark Leuchte of the Command Center in Juneau said two Anchorage fire department boats and two Good Samaritans helped search the waters in the area. Alaska State Troopers and Anchorage airport security also assisted in the search.
