KODIAK - The Coast Guard has suspended its search for a 26-year-old man who reportedly fell from a container ship south of Adak Island into 20-foot seas.

The Coast Guard said it suspended its aerial search shortly after 3 p.m. Wednesday after covering almost 900 nautical miles. No signs of the man were found.

The Coast Guard was notified Tuesday night that one of the crew was missing.

The container ship also issued a call for help from any vessels in the area.

The 792-foot Cap Gilbert is a Liberia-flagged vessel sailing from Ningbo, China, to Manzino, Mexico. The crew member is from Myanmar, also called Burma.
