Elizabeth City USCG helicopter crew among those searching for mariner near Norfolk

The Coast Guard is searching for 63-year-old Paul Youngk, who was last seen on his sailing vessel Grafin, which had grounded off of Fort Norfolk on the Elizabeth River.

Youngk was reportedly aboard the Grafin when it began taking on water and eventually submerged below the water early Sunday morning.

Coast Guard Sector Hampton Roads launched a 29-foot Response Boat-Small from Coast Guard Station Portsmouth and an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City to assist.

Also searching is Virginia Marine Resources Commission, Norfolk Police Department, Norfolk Fire Department, Hampton Police Department and Chesapeake Fire Department.

Youngk was last seen wearing blue jeans, a black jacket and a green shirt.

Anyone with additional information regarding this case may contact the Coast Guard Sector Hampton Roads command center on VHF-FM channel 16, or at 757-638-6638.
