Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A search was under way Tuesday for a sailor assigned to the San Diego-based amphibious assault ship USS Boxer, which is currently deployed to Middle Eastern waters.

The sailor did not report to his watch duty while the ship was conducting maritime security operations in the Gulf of Aden, which separates Yemen and Somalia, according to the Navy's 5th Fleet.

After a search of the Boxer was unsuccessful, aircraft and three ships were sent to look for the sailor, whose name was not released.

The Boxer deployed in February.
