BATON ROUGE, La (WVLA) -- The family of an LSU graduate missing in the Pacific Ocean says the body found by the Coast Guard is not James.
James de Brueys, 22, went missing over the weekend. He was on a boat with three other people off the coast of the Marshall Islands. The group was traveling to the main island, Majuro, for a Thanksgiving dinner, but they never showed up. Since then, the U.S. Coast Guard found their boat, overturned and empty and the ice chest they brought along on the trip.
The Coast Guard found the body of one of the other passengers on the boat. Family members say the Coast Guard will continue their search today.
