Overturned Boat, Missing Man

At around 11:30 pm on May 7, 2006, the 30-foot fishing vessel, Lady Alliene, AKA Calico Dog, had two crewmen aboard when it overturned on its way into Unalaska Bay near Dutch Harbor. The boat was returning from cod fishing, and had 2,700 pounds of cod on deck, when the accident occurred. Weather at the time of the incident was dark and rainy, with poor visibility and five-foot seas.

One of the two crewmen was able to crawl out onto the top of the overturned hull. He was eventually rescued by a passing Alaska State Trooper vessel, the Stimpson. The second man has not been found. Neither man was wearing a life jacket or survival suit.
