Coast Guard stops search for missing crewman
NEW ORLEANS - The Coast Guard has given up its search for a missing crewman.
The man went overboard in the Gulf of Mexico Saturday about 60 miles southwest of Port Fourchon from the Dustin Danos, operated by Raceland-based Gulf Offshore Logistics.
The Coast Guard says it stopped looking Monday. Crews searched for 52 hours and covered more than 2,733 square miles.
Multiple crews from Coast Guard Air Station New Orleans, the Coast Guard Aviation Training Center in Mobile, Ala., and a commercial helicopter crew were involved, alongside the Coast Guard cutter Pelican and the vessel Dustin Danos.
The man was last seen wearing gray long johns and a white T-shirt. He hasn't been named.
