Man Overboard: Bulker Crewman Missing off Virginia

By Eric Haun

The U.S. Coast Guard and other agencies are searching for a missing crewman who fell overboard from an anchored bulk carrier near Cape Charles, Va., Tuesday.
The 33-year-old Chinese crewman reportedly went overboard early Tuesday morning while fastening a ladder on the starboard quarter of the 770-foot Hong Kong flagged cargo ship Lara Venture at the Cape Charles Anchorage.
He was not wearing a life jacket and last seen wearing orange coveralls and a dark blue jacket, the Coast Guard said.
Coast Guard helicopter crews are searching for the missing crewman along with the crews of Cutter Sea Horse from Base Portsmouth and a Virginia pilot vessel.
The Coast Guard has issued an urgent marine information broadcast.
