Re: Not good news

I have not seen any updates. The story was not widely covered. I've seen NO local news coverage. The Plaquemines Parish Sheriff's Office has nothing on their page.
I got the original info from a friend hunting down that way. I saw a news story out of Jackson Mississippi of all places yesterday that said the missing guy fell from a ship, but that his two shipmates swam to shore. It definitely was not a ship but a duck hunting boat. I've posted the info I could find, but is has been difficult to obtain and as far as I know, they are no longer actively searching.

'The United States Coast Guard has dispatched a fleet of response vessels in search of a 27-year-old man who was aboard a ship that sank near Fort Jackson, Louisiana at sunrise Saturday.
Officials say that watch standers at Coast Guard Sector New Orleans received a call for help at 5:41 a.m.
The vessel with three people aboard was “taking on water, near mile marker 20 on the Mississippi River,” a press release said.
The boat sank and two of the three people aboard were able to swim to shore, but the 27-year-old man did not.
His name is not yet known. His shipmates say he was last seen wearing a camouflage jacket.'
