The US Coast Guard (USCG) has announced the suspension of search activities for a crewman reported missing from a bulk carrier near Seattle.
A total of 25 searches had been conducted for the chief mate of 2011-built panamax vessel Golden Jake, who was noticed to be missing while the ship was at anchor north of Blake Island State Park in Puget Sound.
Authorities deployed USCG cutter Wahoo and resources from Air Station Port Angeles during the searches.
An investigation into the disappearance of the man, a Filipino national, is being conducted by officers of Sector Puget Sound and of Customs and Border Protections.
Golden Jake is owned by John Fredriksen’s Golden Ocean Group.
