Coast Guard suspends search for shipyard worker

The Coast Guard said Thursday it has suspended its search for a shipyard employee who has been missing since high winds blew him into the Mobile River in Mobile, Alabama, on Wednesday.

The winds also caused a Carnival cruise ship to break loose from a repair dock.

An official with the city's fire department said that the missing employee and another person were in a guard shack at the BAE shipyard that was blown into the Mobile River. One of them was found in the water.
