JUNEAU, Alaska - The Coast Guard will resume a search Wednesday for a crewman missing from a vessel bound from Washington state to eastern Asia.

KINY-radio ( reports the man is missing from the boat carrier Aqua Splendor.

Lt. Lane Munroe of the Alaska Coast Guard command center in Juneau says the agency took a distress alert from the vessel Tuesday night.

The vessel was 300 miles south of the city of Kodiak.

Crew members threw floatation devices to the man overboard to assist him and mark the location.

The Coast Guard launched a C-130 aircraft to assist in the search but foul weather forced the airplane back to its base.

The vessel APL China responded and helped search.

The Coast Guard planned to resume searching after first light Wednesday.
