Coast Guard searching for missing fisherman after boat found adrift near Bainbridge Island

SEATTLE (AP) — The Coast Guard is searching for a 54-year-old man whose empty boat was found adrift near Bainbridge Island.

The search began around 6:30 p.m. Monday after a Coast Guard vessel found multiple indications the 15-foot boat was being used, including a fishing pole and an open tackle box.

His wife confirmed that the man's truck and trailer were still at the Port Orchard Marina boat ramp.

Coast Guard officials say the man was not wearing a life jacket.
