JUNEAU, Alaska - A 57-year-old Haines man on a sailboat is the subject of a Coast Guard search.

The agency says Scott Pierce on Sunday morning left Haines for Juneau on a white and teal trimmed 25-foot sailboat, the Darshan.

He was due in Monday and he had planned to attend the Juneau Folk Festival.

The Coast Guard is searching with the Juneau-based cutter Liberty, a 45-foot response boat from Juneau and an Air Station Sitka MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter.

The agency has issued an urgent marine information broadcast requesting that other boaters assist if they spot the sailboat.

The Coast Guard reports winds of 11 mph, 2-foot waves and scattered snow showers in the search area.
