Search continues for missing man on Zarembo Island

A search for a man missing near Wrangell / Petersburg continues today. The Coast Guard says the search began over the weekend for Miguel Rodriguez, a 40-year-old man working for Triple T Tree Thinning in Sitka. He was on Zarembo Island with a crew contracted by the U.S. Forest Service. Lieutenant Heather Neely with the Juneau command center says her office got a call late Saturday night after some of Rodriguez’s co-workers found his fishing pole and wallet in Zarembo’s Roosevelt Harbor.
