Four crew members off a fishing boat have been found alive, located in chilly waters off Alaska's Aleutian Islands, the Associated Press reported.

Coast Guard Petty Officer Levi Read says the bodies of two other crew members have also been found, and the search continues for the five remaining crew members of the Katmai, a 93-foot (28.35-meter) fish processor based on Kodiak island.

Read says the four are being flown in a Coast Guard helicopter to Adak Island, about 1,300 miles ( 2,092 kilometers) southwest of Anchorage.

He says the four were discovered Wednesday about 100 miles ( 161 kilometers) west of Adak. No other details were

immediately available.
