(ST. GEORGE, ALASKA) -- The US Coast Guard said Monday night Feb. 13 the search had been called off for a Seattle based crabbing vessel that was missing for the three days in the frigid waters of the Bering Sea.

The Seattle owned 95-foot fishing vessel Destination, with a crew of six on board, was on its way to start the snow crab harvest season when its emergency locator beacon activated at 6:11 am Saturday morning Feb. 11

When Coast Guard searchers arrived they found only traces of the vessel: a life ring, buoys, tarps and an oil slick. Even though the search has been discontinued, the vessel has not been declared sunk and the men aboard are still considered missing.

“The decision to suspend a search is always difficult and is made with great care and consideration," said Rear Adm. Michael McAllister, Coast Guard 17th District commander, in a release.

The Coast Guard search for the vessel covered 5,730 square nautical miles.

Coast Guard officials have not released the names of the crew but KING-TV in Seattle reported that family members had confirmed to the station the identities of three crew members: 46-year-old Charles Glenn Jones, Kai Hamik, 29, and Larry O’Grady 55.
