Police in Alaska searched the Cornelia Marie, a boat featured in the reality show "Deadliest Catch," for evidence of a star's drug abuse.

According to TMZ.com, police searched the boat on Nov. 5 after Captain Derek Ray called police claiming one of the crew was abusing drugs on board.

Captain Ray reportedly told police Jake Harris, son of late Captain Phil Harris, had been abusing prescription drugs while at sea.

TMZ says police found paraphernalia on the boat, but not enough evidence to connect Harris to a crime.
