Crab fisherman missing in Bering Strait

A 40-year-old crab fisherman was reported missing Tuesday in the Bering Sea after his foot became tangled in a pot line, and he was pulled overboard.

Juneau, Alaska

A 40-year-old crab fisherman was reported missing Tuesday in the Bering Sea after his foot became tangled in a pot line, and he was pulled overboard.

Coast Guard helicopters and a C130 searched — but did not locate the crabber who worked aboard the Kodiak-based Seabrooke.

The Seabrooke was fishing for snow crab about 22 miles northwest of Cold Bay, Alaska, when the accident occurred at about 9:55 a.m., according to Coast Guard Petty Officer Walter Shinn.

The name of the fisherman was not released Tuesday. The search was expected to resume today.
