PORT FOURCHON, Louisiana — We continue to follow developing news off the coast of Louisiana after the Seacor Power capsized earlier this week.

The U.S. Coast Guard recovered another missing sailor Thursday night near the commercial ship that capsized. He was unresponsive and taken to the Coast Guard station where he was pronounced dead.

There are now two people recovered and 11 still unaccounted for.

The Corpus Christi Air Wing of the Coast Guard has one crew on duty in the search. They are being rotated daily.

So far, the Coast Guard has searched more than 1,400 square miles of the gulf.

The commercial lift ship capsized 8 miles south of the coast of Louisiana on Tuesday.
