NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The Coast Guard and an oilfield supply boat continue to search for a missing crewman.

The man went overboard in the Gulf of Mexico Saturday about 60 miles southwest of Port Fourchon from the Dustin Danos, operated by Raceland-based Gulf Offshore Logistics.

A Coast Guard official says the cutter Pelican continues to search with the Dustin Danos for the missing crewman, who was last seen wearing gray long johns and a white T-shirt. He hasn’t been named.

The Coast Guard has also used aircraft based in New Orleans and Mobile, Ala., to look for the man. A commercial helicopter has also taken part in the search.
