JUNEAU, Alaska — The Coast Guard says it's searching for a missing boater in southeast Alaska waters.

Petty Officer 3rd Class Diana Honings says the Coast Guard in Juneau received a report that a 21-year-old boater named Gus McConnell was following a larger boat to Hoonah in a 16-foot white and blue skiff when the operator of the larger vessel lost sight of the skiff on Thursday.

A Jayhawk helicopter crew was sent out to search the area.

The agency was told that McConnell is unfamiliar with the area and was last seen wearing blue jeans, boots and an Oregon sweatshirt.
