Two boaters were discovered Tuesday after being reported overdue from Eek on Monday.
Around noon Tuesday, 40-year-old Ronald Green of Eek and 23-year-old Alicia Sharp of Quinhagak were located by searchers. The two were reported overdue Monday, after they failed to arrive back in Eek on Sunday night. A local effort went by water to search for the pair, who were on an 18-foot Lund skiff.
Troopers said the deteriorating weather along the coast had grounded their aircraft from joining the search, but local airlines had been asked to look along their routes.
