Man reported overboard far south of Kodiak

The U.S. Coast Guard on Saturday searched for a crewman reported missing off a container ship some 900 miles southeast of Kodiak Island.

The Coast Guard was notified about 4:30 p.m. that a 49-year-old South Korean crewman on the Mol Explorer was discovered missing about 2:30 p.m. The man was last seen about 22 hours earlier at dinner.

A Coast Guard C-130 aircraft was launched out of Kodiak to search for the crewman.

The Mol Explorer was bound for Tokyo from Oakland, Calif.
