PORT FOURCHON, La. — WGNO’s Anna McAllister spoke briefly with the fiancé of missing Slidell man Chaz Morales on Sunday morning.

A day after rescue efforts were halted due to severe weather, Marion Cuyler said U.S. Navy Seal dive teams are looking for the remaining nine crewmen still missing since the Seacor Power commercial lift boat first capsized eight miles south of Port Fourchon, La., on Tuesday afternoon.

“They couldn’t dive last night, seas were not favorable,” Cuyler told WGNO. “They were on the dive boat at 9:50 this morning  headed to the vessel. Going to continue on level 3.”

According to McAllister, another press briefing will be held tonight at 8 p.m. at the fire station in Cut Off.
