Abandoned bike prompts search of ferry in Seattle

A ferry from Seattle to Bremerton was delayed this morning after someone abandoned a bicycle.

A lime-green BMX bike was found on a routine sweep of the ferry Cathlamet after the 8:45 a.m. trip from Bremerton to Seattle. Fearing the owner may have jumped or fallen overboard, crew members searched the ferry, which delayed the 10 a.m. run to Bremerton for 30 minutes.

Using security-video footage, investigators found that the owner of the bike walked off the ship. The ferry resumed its run, according to an official for the Washington State Ferries.
