PORT FOURCHON, La. -- The search for nine crew members missing from a capsized lift boat in the Gulf of Mexico off Louisiana is continuing for a sixth day.

Officials have released little information about their search in the murky seas surrounding the capsized Seacor Power lift boat some 8 miles off the coast since announcing divers found two bodies inside the ship Friday night.

Six people were rescued alive after the boat capsized Tuesday in a storm.

Four bodies have been found — one Wednesday, one Thursday and two on Friday.

Families of the missing crew members haven’t given up that maybe they found an air pocket or are still alive.
