AK - Jesse Mills, 40, Sitka, 7 April 2016
The Coast Guard, Sitka Police and Fire Departments are looking for 40-year-old Jesse Mills, reported missing by his wife.
Mills left home Wednesday night, wearing a black sweatshirt and black Carhartts. His single kayak, a lime green and white Seaward, is also missing, prompting his wife to believe he went kayaking.
“We don’t have any information that he is indeed kayaking, That’s why the police department is also involved with doing shore searches and keeping an eye out for him there.”
The Coast Guard has been focusing their search throughout Northern Sitka Sound, as well as Japonski Island and the east side of Kruzof Island.

A 41-year old Sitka man missing in a kayak since Thursday morning is presumed dead.
The Coast Guard suspended the search for 41-year-old Jesse Mills of Sitka on Friday afternoon.
During a first-light search Friday, a Coast Guard helicopter discovered an overturned kayak on Kasiana Island. A diver recovered the kayak, wedged between rocks with a paddle attached.
While mobilized searching has been suspended, the USCG Cutter Liberty will remain in Sitka to coordinate volunteer searchers.
