ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The Coast Guard says it’s found no trace of two men believed to have fallen overboard from vessels in separate cases off Alaska.

KTUU-TV ( ) reports that Petty Officer 3rd Class Grant DeVuyst (De-VOIST) says the searches were suspended late Wednesday.

The officer says a report came in Wednesday morning of a man who fell into the water from the fishing vessel Seeker, about 10 miles northwest of Unimak Island in the Bering Sea. A Coast Guard helicopter helped search for the man but found nothing. A Coast Guard vessel arrived on scene Wednesday afternoon.

In southeast Alaska, there’s been no sign of 52-year-old John Anderson of Ketchikan, who apparently fell from his houseboat in the Tongass Narrows. Ketchikan police found the 40-foot Diver III adrift Wednesday morning, having dragged its anchor in 35 mph winds.
