GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

The body of Lindsey A Tucker, 58, of Vancleave was recovered by salvage divers, Gary Hargrove told WLOX News. The body was found in the cabin of the sunken pogey boat "Sandy Point."

After recovering Tucker, operations were suspended because underwater conditions changed making it dangerous for the divers; the divers were starting to get caught in the fishing net which has caused problems for the DMR divers earlier in the week.

An autopsy is pending. The other two men haven't been found. The recovery operation will resume first thing in the morning.
