BOGALUSA, La. (CSU) — One boater is dead, and another is missing after an accident on the Pearl River in Louisiana. Search crews found Joseph Newby’s body. They were looking for a 47-year-old man and a 14-foot boat.
He said that he and another person left Bogalusa at Pools Bluff about 4:30 p.m. on Monday. They were reported missing about four hours later, but the other person’s body was found about midnight.
The boat tipped over when it went over a part that was close to the place where people could put boats in the water. In the search and rescue crews from the department and from the Washington and St. Tammany Parish sheriff’s offices, they were looking for a second man.
