DAUPHIN ISLAND, Ala.: Authorities have identified the third person killed when a powerful storm struck a sailboat race on the Alabama coast.
The U.S. Coast Guard said Wednesday that the body of 67-year-old William Glenn Massey of Daphne was found near a gas platform in Mobile Bay. An angler spotted the body Tuesday and notified officials.
Massey is the third person confirmed dead since the boating disaster happened Saturday afternoon. The search continues in the Gulf of Mexico and inland waters for three others who remain missing.
The other victims include 27-year-old Kris Beall of Pineville, Louisiana, and 72-year-old Robert Delaney of Madison, Mississippi.
Searchers have covered more than 5,600 square miles of water looking for possible survivors and victims. Volunteers are walking shorelines looking for any signs of the missing.
