NEW ORLEANS - Searchers have returned to the Mississippi River for a seventh day of searching for the body of the brother of Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed.

Tim Miller of Texas EquuSearch said that despite heavy fog and intermittent rain on Tuesday, three boats using sonar and dragging operations planned to scour the currents for eight to 10 miles down river.

They are searching down stream from where a man believed to be 26-year-old Brian Reed jumped into the river on Jan. 7, after being confronted by a deputy sheriff.

Karen Reed, the mother of Ed and Brian Reed, said investigators found her son's shoes and jacket. She said the car the man ran from belonged to another brother.
