Man reported overboard south of Kodiak Island

The Associated Press

The Coast Guard has suspended the search for a crewman missing more than 12 hours from a vessel bound from Washington state to eastern Asia.

KINY-radio (http://bit.ly/WBe2Xg) reports he fell from the boat carrier Aqua Splendor.

The Coast Guard took a distress alert from the vessel Tuesday night when it was 300 miles south of the city of Kodiak.

Crew members threw floatation devices to the man overboard to assist him and to mark the location.

The Coast Guard launched a C-130 aircraft to assist in the search but foul weather forced the airplane back to its base.

The vessel APL China responded and helped search.

The Coast Guard had planned to resume searching Wednesday but inclement weather kept its plane grounded. Weather also limited visibility in the search area.
