Crewmember disappears from container ship off Alabama coast
The Coast Guard continues the search for a Phillipine crewmember who is thought to have gone overboard from a container ship Monday morning as the vessel was approaching Mobile.
Lt. Timothy Williams of the Coast Guard said the crewmember, aboard the Singapore-flagged container ship MSC Tokyo, was reported missing about 2:30 a.m. Monday. The man vanished after he went on deck to recover a ladder used to help a pilot come on board to direct the ship into port.
The ladder and a shoe were found on deck.
