Search: Texas Man Fell From Fishing Boat Off Louisiana Coast



 

CAMERON, La. (AP) — The Coast Guard is searching for a 55-year-old Texas man who fell from a fishing boat anchored off southwest Louisiana.

A news release says the captain of the fishing vessel Captain Edwin radioed about 3 a.m. Monday, reporting that a crewman had fallen off of the nearby Captain Kent about 100 miles south of Cameron.

Petty Officer Edward Wargo says the man is from Brownsville, Texas, but he cannot release his name.

The Houston-Galveston sector says in a news release that a Coast Guard helicopter, airplane and cutter are searching for the man.

Wargo says investigators were told he was not wearing a life vest, making it hard to find him in the darkness.
