Wreckage of lost crabber found in 250 feet depth


OAA ships located the missing "Destination" that disappeared in the Bering Sea on the bottom near St. George, Alaska. Over the spring, NOAA ships surveyed the area last known to the "Destination" with sonar to locate the missing ship in nearly 250 feet of water. With the wreckage and debris field located by NOAA ships, a U.S. Coast Guard dive team aboard the Coast Guard Cutter "Healy" will use a remotely operated vehicle to investigate the wreckage later in July. No traces were, however, found of the missing Charles Glenn Jones, Larry O'Grady, Raymond Vincler, Darrik Seibold, Kai Hamik and Jeff Hathaway. The discovery of the wreckage is an instrumental piece in the Coast Guard investigation. The Coast Guard’s Marine Board of Investigation will hold a public hearing in August.
