Coast Guard crews say they are searching for a missing fishing vessel crewman who went missing Thursday evening, 58 miles south of Mobile Bay.
Officials say 35-year-old Benjamin Sorrells was reportedly leaning over the side of the AC III fishing vessel, when he slipped overboard. He was last seen wearing blue jeans and without a life jacket.
The Coast Cuard Sector Mobile Watchstanders were notified of the disappearance of the crew member around 6:20 p.m. At that time the Aviation Training Center Mobile, HC-144 Ocean Sentry Aircrew, was dispatched to begin the search. They continued the search throughout the night.
No more information is known at this time as the investigation continues.
