A distraught Hoonah mother is holding out hope that her eldest child, lost in a Yakutat boating accident this week, is still alive, somewhere.
The Coast Guard suspended its search Thursday night, but local residents continue to look for Erik Kveum, 21, and his cousin Charles Johnson, 40, after their skiff was found overturned Thursday morning. "They have not declared him dead yet," said Sandy Kveum of Hoonah shortly after 4 p.m.
