BUSH- Search crews continue to look for a missing Baton Rouge couple near the Bogue Chitto Wildlife Refuge. William and Kathy Holloway were last heard from Tuesday. Their 14 foot, aluminum boat was discovered capsized about one mile from the Lock #3 Road boat launch near Bush.

Day two of the search included additional resources from the Saint Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Crews searched the water and shoreline. The couple's campsite has been located. Agents say it appears the Holloways were on their way out when something happened. The cause of any problem has not been determined.

Family members tell News 2 the couple loved to hunt. Wildlife agents say they had been hunting and camping near the Bogue Chitto River since before Thanksgiving. Crews are scheduled to continue the search tomorrow.
