JUNEAU - The Coast Guard has suspended a search for a Romanian man who was reported missing early Thursday from a ship in western Alaska.
The 38-year-old man was reported as possibly overboard from a 900-foot container ship, the Greek-flagged New York Express, as it traveled near Akutan, bound for Seattle.
The Coast Guard intends to conduct an investigation when the ship arrives in Seattle.
