BAY ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Coast Guard is still actively searching for a 43-year-old man who went missing in Bay St. Louis, Miss. Saturday after the boat he and three other men were in capsized.

Coast Guard spokesman Roger Sustair in Mobile, Alabama told The Associated Press Sunday that the search started Saturday.

A statement from the Coast Guard says a watchstander at Coast Guard Station Gulfport received a report from a person driving over the Bay St. Louis Bridge of a capsized vessel with people in the water around 5 p.m. Saturday.
