Missing Oysterman Found

An Alabama Oysterman missing since Sunday night turned up this morning on the Ocean Springs beach.

Jean Devlin from Bayou La Batre was getting his boat ready Sunday night to go oystering in Heron Bayou.

High winds pushed Devlin and his boat into the sound. Devlin did not have a way to navigate and drifted for a day and through the storm last night.

His boat eventually landed in Ocean Springs near front beach.

Devlin was taken to Singing River Hospital this morning to be checked up. Tonight, he's back home.
