SEATTLE (AP) — The Coast Guard is searching for a crewman who fell off a fishing boat about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday off the Olympic Peninsula, about eight miles west of the mouth of the Queets River.

The Coast Guard responded to a call from the vessel Senja with a helicopter from Astoria and a 47-foot boat from Westport.

The crewman was not wearing a life jacket when he fell into the 48-degree water.
