HONOLULU (AP) - The Coast Guard says a search has been launched for a 23-year-old crew member of a container ship who was reported overboard northeast of Oahu.

According to the Coast Guard, the male Japanese national had been on the ship Hercules Highway. He was last seen at about 7 p.m. Sunday.

The Coast Guard was notified shortly before 8:30 a.m. Monday that the man went overboard about 805 miles northeast of Oahu.

A Coast Guard HC-130 Hercules airplane crew responded to the scene. The Coast Guard says the container ship has changed course and also is searching for the missing man.
