A Coast Guard boat and helicopter are searching the waters near Anacortes for a man who failed to return from crabbing.
A spokeswoman in Seattle, Petty Officer 3rd Class Katelyn Shearer, says 48-year-old Dean Harvey of Bremerton was last seen Tuesday morning when he and his brother left Anacortes in separate 18-foot fishing boats to go crabbing. The brother later reported him missing.
The spokeswoman says rain, limited visibility and wind gusts restricted the search but conditions are better Wednesday morning.
