Search Continues in Destin Area Gulf Waters

Florida's Wildlife Agency is pressing ahead with its search for a missing fisherman in the Gulf of Mexico even though the Coast Guard gave up three days ago.

The Coast Guard found the body of one of two missing Georgia fishermen on Friday then suspended its search for the other man.

The men's boat capsized on Thursday about three miles offshore from Destin. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is maintaining an aerial search for Dennis Herring of Riverdale, Georgia.

Herring's family was taken into the Gulf of Mexico aboard a Coast Guard boat for a memorial service Sunday.
