PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Portland police are searching for a fisherman who disappeared from the commercial fishing boat on which he lives.

Police say 66-year-old George Manning was last seen at 4:30 a.m. Monday walking down Custom House Wharf toward the boat, Northstar. Police say he hasn't been in contact with crew members, and his phone and wallet were found on the boat.

Police divers from both Portland and South Portland were searching the harbor in the event Manning fell into the water.

Manning is described as 6 foot tall and weighing 175 pounds, with a shaved head and mustache. He was last wearing jeans, a t-shirt and Red Sox baseball cap with a shamrock logo.
