BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - The search is still on for a missing Louisiana fisherman whose boat overturned Sunday off Cat Island. Another man, from Long Beach, was found floating on a gas can just north of Cat Island and rescued by a passing boater.
The missing man was last seen floating on a white seat cushion. Neither man was wearing a life jacket.
According to the rescued man, the pair were fishing off the island when their 12-foot, green skiff overturned at about 1 p.m. He was floating on the gas can for about two hours before another boater found him.
