Coast Guard searching for 2 missing shrimpers

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The Coast Guard is searching for two missing shrimpers last seen south of the Southwest Pass near the mouth of the Mississippi River.

The Coast Guard says the shrimping vessel Christopher's Joy capsized around 4 p.m. Tuesday throwing the four crew members into the water.

They say a boat in the area rescued two members of the shrimp boat crew.
