NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Coast Guard says it is searching the Mississippi River west of New Orleans for a tugboat crewman.

A news release Monday said the crew of the tug Miss Courtney reported the man missing late Sunday, saying he’d last been seen about 11:15 p.m.

Two Coast Guard aircraft, a Coast Guard boat and a New Orleans Port Authority boat are searching a 54-mile stretch from Waggaman west to White Castle.

The Coast Guard did not release the man’s name. He’s described as Hispanic, in his early thirties and wearing dark clothing.
