(AP) — The Coast Guard has told families of missing workers that another body has been found from the lift boat capsized off the Louisiana coast and a coroner has confirmed that to a news outlet.

Steven Walcott said families were told Friday during a meeting with the Coast Guard that the body was found about 33 miles from the overturned ship. His brother Gregory Walcott is among the missing.

Lafourche Parish Coroner John King also told nola.com Friday that the body was found in the water, not the vessel, where divers hope to find some survivors. Six of the 19 workers on the boat were rescued within hours of the wreck; eleven remain missing.
