"Seattle" Crew Safe
Major Frederick L. Martin and Staff Sergeant Alva L. Harvey were found today. The two men left Chignik, Alaska flying the Douglas World Cruiser on the morning of April 30th and disappeared later that day.
No trace of the plane or crew was found until the men were picked up at Moller Bay today by a launch and transported to the cannery at Port Moller where they arrived at 6 p.m.
Details of the flyer's ordeal are sketchy at this point, but the two men apparently walked from the crash site of their plane -- "Seattle" -- to Port Moller over the 11 days they were missing.

Another day which was mostly rain & woolies -- but not near as violent as those of yesterday.
In the afternoon some of us went ashore and looked around. The natives here weave a basket from grass that is very attractive, and as it can only be obtained here makes a nice souvenir. In as much as the price went from ten to fifteen dollars overnight, we didn't get any.
Just before six o'clock the Haida arrived and anchored some two miles away -- some of them came in & visited & confirmed the radio news we picked up earlier in the day that Maj Martin had turned up OK From all accounts he must have had a truing experience & all are delighted that he and Harvey have turned up safe and sound.
