The Mobile County sheriff's office and Alabama Marine Police say the body of a crab fisherman was recovered near Gailliard Island on Mobile Bay.

Rescue workers believe 42-year-old Som Phane of Irvington fell in the water and drowned Monday afternoon.

Search and rescue teams found Phane's body just before 5 p-m. Tuesday

Authorities said Phane had gone crab fishing Monday and was reported missing by family members when he failed to return home.

A family friend said Phane was alone and was not an experienced crab fisherman.
