The body of a missing energy executive was pulled from the Mississippi River in New Orleans, Louisiana, Tuesday, four days after he disappeared, a police spokesman said.
Police had said Tuesday morning they believed Douglas Schantz, president of Houston, Texas-based Sequent Energy Management, had fallen into the river. They recovered his body just hours later, according to New Orleans Police Department spokesman Gary Flot.
Schantz, 54, was last seen outside a Bourbon Street bar at 2:06 a.m. Friday, New Orleans Police Department Superintendent Warren Riley told reporters Tuesday morning. No one had heard from him since then.
Several cameras captured a "disoriented" Schantz walking alone from a bar toward the Mississippi River, Riley said. Schantz had been drinking, Riley said, and was headed toward a boat at the wharf.
