The U.S. Coast Guard reports a search is under way for a man reported overboard from a fishing vessel near Skagway.
A press release does not name the lost man, nor the boat involved.
The Coast Guard says it received a call from Skagway police this afternoon saying the man had fallen overboard.
Efforts to pull him back aboard with a life ring failed, the Coast Guard says.
Two helicopters, a C-130 airplane, three good Samaritan vessels and Skagway emergency responders are involved in the search.
