Body of man reported missing pulled from Louisiana lake
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Authorities on Saturday recovered from a Louisiana lake the body of a man who had been reported missing.
William Segrave, 65, left home Thursday afternoon in his 28-foot shrimp boat. He was reported missing Friday after family members found his empty boat still in gear near the foot of the Highway 11 bridge, the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office said.
The Sheriff’s Office Marine Unit, members of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and the U.S. Coast Guard joined family members searching the lake.
The body was found about noon near the Interstate 10 Twin Span bridges and will be turned over to the St. Tammany Parish coroner’s office for autopsy to determine a cause of death and positive identification, the Sheriff’s Office said.
