Coast Guard search ends unsuccessfully

The search for a missing crew member of an Alaskan bound fish processing boat was called off on Wednesday, after Coast Guard officials could find no trace of the man who went overboard on Tuesday in waters south of Prince Rupert.

It was estimated that the man was in the water for at least eighteen hours, which considering the temperature of the waters of the North coast was far beyond the cold water survival guidelines.

The Northern View was among a number of media outlets with details of the search and eventual decision to call it to an end.
