The Coast Guard is searching for a man who fell off of a flatboat this weekend near the intersection of Bayou Bienvenu and the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet. Petty Officer Stacey Pardini says a driver called, saying he had seen two men on a flatboat on Bayou Bienvenu, and then saw one of them fall in. She says the Coast Guard sent two small boats and a helicopter. Once they had confirmed the report with the man remaining on the flatboat, they began searching.
