Two large shipping containers, stamped with the words “Contains: Guided Missile,” were discovered in the Pacific Ocean near Alaska Sunday. Alaska State Troopers said the containers were empty, and information from tags attached to the boxes was sent to the U.S. military. There was no immediate public comment from military officials.
Troopers were investigating the discovery of one suspicious box when they got a radio message from another mariner that a second container had been found. Both were found near the southeast island community of Craig. Clinton Cook Sr. told KTUU-TV he was on a charter boat that found one of the heavy, hard plastic containers. They were going to pass it, but noticed the unusual shape. FULL REPORT
