Coast Guard suspends search for mysterious caller

Seattle – The Coast Guard has suspended the search for a six-year-old girl named Kelsey. The girl called the Coast Guard at 5:11 p.m. yesterday on the maritime distress frequency VHF channel 16, stating that someone with her, possibly named Kelly, was “in the water” and was “not waking up.”

The Coast Guard received the transmission on its radio towers in the southern Puget Sound, and conducted a thorough search of the area with an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Port Angeles, Wash., and a small boat crew from Coast Guard Station Seattle.

A search was conducted in the same area this morning by a Coast Guard Auxiliary aircraft with no sightings or signs of distress.

Anyone who heard this little girl on the radio, or who can provide additional information, is requested to contact Coast Guard Sector Seattle at 206-217-6001.
