October 27, 2008|Times Wire Reports

After combing nearly 5,000 square miles of ocean around the Aleutian Islands, the Coast Guard says it has stopped searching for two remaining crew members missing after the sinking of a fishing boat off Alaska.

Eleven crew members were aboard the fishing boat as it sank early Tuesday. Four survivors were rescued from a life raft. Five were found dead in the water.

Testimony by survivors is to begin today at an investigative hearing in Anchorage.
