Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries enforcement agents today (April 8) are actively searching for a missing Vacherie man in Lac des Allemands in St. John the Baptist Parish, the agency reported.

LDWF, along with the U.S. Coast Guard and St. John the Baptist Sheriff's Office, are searching the lake for Larry T. Brock, 66, who has been missing since yesterday morning, the agency reported.

The St. John the Baptist Sheriff's Office notified LDWF agents of an unmanned vessel found in Lac des Allemands running in circles around 11 a.m. The 18-foot aluminum vessel with a 130-horsepower motor was found with several catfish on board and bait for hoop nets.

According to a fellow fisherman, Brock is a commercial fisherman who was running hoop nets in the morning, LDWF stated.

When Brock did not return by 10:30 a.m., the second fisherman went looking for him, found the unmanned vessel and notified the sheriff's office.
