NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A body found in the river near Carrollton Ave. is the missing crewman who drowned late in December.
Jayme Swafford was on a work boat near Luling with two other crewmen when their 24-foot boat capsized, according to family members.
Coast Guard and Good Samaritan vessels were able to rescue two of the men, but gave up the search for Swafford after a few days.
His family members say he was identified thanks to a tattoo spotted on the body.
They say they're eternally grateful for the tugboat operator who spotted the body earlier this week.
