I doubt this is the missing Diver. Just got this from Coast Guard.

NEW ORLEANS – The Coast Guard has located the man believed to be lost near the Chandeleur Islands in Louisiana, Monday.

Thanh Tran was believed to be lost on the ICW between Abbeville, Louisiana and Biloxi, Mississippi after last being seen on the fishing vessel Tina H in Abbeville, Tuesday.

A Coast Guard MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew from Air Station New Orleans spotted the Tina H anchored west of the Chandeleur Islands and hoisted Tran and the other crewmember, returning them to the air

Pensacola incident happened Saturday on one of the rig jackets. Out of town diver on a charter, or so I've heard 3rd or 4th hand.

As for a Coast Guard Report.... Don't hold your breath.
