A search has been launched in the waters of southeast Alaska and Canada for a 67-year-old woman reported missing from a cruise ship.
The passenger, who hasn't been identified, was noticed missing Wednesday morning when she didn't leave the Sapphire Princess at the Port of Vancouver, British Columbia.
The Princess Cruise liner departed Ketchikan on Monday on an Inside Passage cruise. The woman wasn't found during a search of the ship, and her personal belongings were in her state room.
The U.S. Coast Guard has sent a helicopter and boats to search from Ketchikan 86 miles south to include Dixon Entrance, Tongass Narrows and the northern end of Hecate Strait.
Canadian officials are searching from Vancouver 517 miles north to Hecate Strait.
A soldier from Idaho who disappeared from his base in Afghanistan has been captured, the Pentagon confirmed Sunday, a day after he was seen in a Taliban video posted online.
The Defense Department released the name of Pfc. Bowe (pronounced BOH) R. Bergdahl, 23, who was serving with an Alaska-based infantry regiment. The private was last seen walking away from his base near the border with Pakistan in an area known to be a Taliban stronghold.
Even before his name became public, two U.S. defense officials confirmed to The Associated Press that the man in that 28-minute video was the captured soldier. The video, in which Bergdahl said he was "scared I won't be able to go home," provided the first public glimpse of the missing American.
The Pentagon statement said Bergdahl's whereabouts became unknown on July 1 and his status was changed July 3 to missing-captured.
It wasn't clear who initially captured Bergdahl, but the U.S. command in Afghanistan said he was being held by the Taliban and condemned the video as a violation of international law.
