CYPREMORT, POINT, La. (BRPROUD) – The United Cajun Navy has been very busy over the last 24 hours.

If you want to know what this search is all about, watch this video.

Searchers began via the air on Wednesday:

Volunteers gathered on Wednesday to continue the search for the seven missing crew members.

Senator Kennedy gave his thoughts on the search:

If Tom Cruise or a politician were out in the Gulf, the powers that be would move heaven and earth to bring them home. Well, we’re talking about something more important—Louisiana sons. The families of the Seacor Power crew have suffered deeply, and I’m urging the Biden admin to get rid of the red tape around recovery efforts for good.

On Thursday morning, the search continues for those ‘Louisiana sons.’

It has been 16 days since the Seacor Power lift boat capsized and the United Cajun Navy is back out searching again, according to Ronnie Adams.

Out of the water, the family of missing Seacor crew member Dylan Daspit claims the U.S. Coast Guard tried to take items from Seacor found in grassroots search for missing crew men.

The family of one of the crew members that was found is filing a lawsuit that includes the boat manufacturer.
