A passenger described as "a 40-year-old caucasian male wearing khaki shorts and either white or grey shirt" is missing after he and a surviving passenger struck a submerged object while boating two miles offshore of Cypremort Point in Vermilion Bay, according to our news partners at KATC.

The incident happened Thursday night around midnight. The survivor was able to swim to safety to a nearby rig.

We are awaiting word from the LDWF, U.S. Coast Guard and Vermilion Parish Sheriff's office as their search continues for the missing boater.
