Four Onboard Flight Over Prince William Sound
Weather continues to hamper the search for a LifeGuard Alaska
helicopter that went missing late Monday afternoon transporting a
patient to an Anchorage hospital from Cordova.
The Associated Press reports four persons were onboard the
helicopter -- the patient, two flight crew, and a nurse. The last
transmission from the BK117 (shown above) was received at 1718
local time Monday; there was no indication of distress, according
to Coast Guard Lt. John McWhite.
Neither the Juneau RCC nor the Alaska RCC received an Emergency
Locator Transmitting (ELT) signal from the helicopter, according to
Sgt. Karima Turner with the Alaska Department of Military and
Blowing snow was reported along the flight path over coastal
terrain in Prince William Sound. An HC-130 was dispatched to the
aircraft's last known location Monday night, but low clouds and
wintry conditions thwarted attempts at a visual search.
Conditions were even worse Tuesday, with the cloud deck
reportedly at water level. Teams planned to resume an aerial search
Wednesday, assisted by three Alaska State Patrol boats.
One leader of the search crew told the AP they'll keep looking
for the medevac aircraft "until it's not plausible or reasonable to
