The search was suspended Tuesday for one person still missing after a commercial shrimp boat overturned Monday in Cedar Bayou near Baytown, Texas.

The man is the sole missing person after his three companions were rescued Monday afternoon.

The Coast Guard said the four people were in the 41-foot fishing vessel, Mr. Anthony, at around 3:30 p.m. Monday when it somehow capsized.

"The water, especially in the Ship Channel, the currents are pretty bad," said fisherman Roque Garcia. "There's riptides, there's underground currents. The current underneath the water is the one that's bad."
