BATON ROUGE, La. (WVLA) An LSU graduate has gone missing in the Pacific Ccean.
According to reports, 22-year-old James de Brueys went missing Saturday.
He was on a boat with 3 other people near the Marshall Islands but that boat was found overturned and empty Tuesday night.
The U.S. Coast Guard, the U.S. navy and islanders are still searching the ocean for the missing boaters.
James used to be a bartender at the Chimes on Highland Road before he picked up and moved 6500 miles away, to teach.
A local business wants to do what it can to bring James home. Storyville is starting a T-shirt campaign to support the de Brueys family. Storyville shirts will feature the phrase "Bring James Home" with a picture of him on it.
The cost of the shirt is $20 and they should be ready by the end of the week. Storyville says all proceeds will go straight to the de Bruey family and whatever costs they encounter.
