PLAQUEMINE - The Coast Guard said they found no oil at the site of a reported spill near Plaquemine.
Commander Quincy Davis said they were told Saturday an oil spill was spotted about 10 miles south of the Port Allen Locks. He also said the person who reported it later told them the oil had dissipated.
Davis said crews today did not find evidence of any oil, but would continue to check the surrounding area.
