Coast Guard: 3 overdue boaters found uninjured

KODIAK — Three boaters overdue from a fishing trip in Prince William Sound have been found with no reported injuries.

The three Anchorage men were located by the U.S. Coast Guard Tuesday. The men had put the anchor down in Lower Passage on the north side of Knight Island after the boat experienced engine problems.

The crew of a Coast Guard cutter remained with the boat, a 24-foot Bayliner. It was on a two-day fishing trip that started Sunday.

They were supposed to be back by midnight Monday, and were reported overdue. The Coast Guard launched the cutter and a response boat from Valdez along with a helicopter from Cordova to search.

The Coast Guard identified the men onboard as 40-year-old John Dimmick, 28-year-old Mark Valdez and 25-year-old Cory Bicchinella.
