Man drowns while crawfishing

PLAQUEMINE, LA (WAFB) - Authorities report they have recovered the body of a 22-year-old man who went missing while crawfishing Sunday in Bayou Sorrel.

The Iberville Parish Sheriff's Office said the body of Joshua Lee Rineheart was found Monday morning about 1 1/2 miles from Jack Miller's Landing.

Deputies said they believe his boat hit something in the water, throwing him into the bayou. He was not wearing a life jacket.

Officials began looking for him when he did not return from his crawfishing trip. His boat and boots were found Sunday night.
