SEATTLE – Audio of the radio call from a little girl to the Coast Guard in Seattle Tuesday evening. To hear the radio call click here
The Coast Guard is seeking the public’s help in identifying the source of a radio call they received earlier this evening [Tuesday evening] from a young girl who identified herself as “Kelsey.” The girl stopped transmitting before additional information could be gathered.
The girl, who said she was six years old, called the Coast Guard at 5:11 PM stating that someone with her, possibly named Kelly, was “in the water,” and was “not waking up.”
The Coast Guard copied the transmission on its radio towers in southern Puget Sound, and conducted a thorough search of the area with an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Port Angeles, Wash., and a small boat crew from Coast Guard Station Seattle.
Anyone who heard this little girl on the radio, or who can provide additional information, is requested to contact Coast Guard Sector Seattle at 206-217-6001
