ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Roughly 120 volunteers in Kodiak showed up to search for evidence Wednesday near the communications station where two Coast Guard members were shot and killed April 13, the FBI said.
Radio station KMXT said the search for a gun, clothes, boots, plastic bags or anything that looked out of place, in an area along Anton Larsen Bay Road, didn't produce any results.
A post, which originally appeared on the Coast Guard Kodiak Facebook page and has since been taken down, requested 100+ volunteers to meet at 8 a.m. for the search, which was expected to be completed before noon. People with metal detectors were encouraged to help.
“It went well,” Eric Gonzalez, an FBI spokesman said Wednesday afternoon. “Morale is high.”
Searchers were told to look for anything inorganic or out of the ordinary that shouldn’t be where it is, Gonzalez said.
