Coast Guard searches for man who fell off boat in Pensacola Bay


The Coast Guard is still searching for a man who fell off a boat in Pensacola Bay overnight.

The missing man is 56-year-old Louie Baca. It happened about 1:30 this morning. The man who was driving the boat, Aaron Harrison, says the group of four people launched at the 17th Avenue ramp and went out into the bay to fish.

He says when they got to the Gulf Breeze side of the bay, he noticed his friend was not in the boat.

"I should have made sure he that he had it on.  I really should have.  It was my responsibility of driving the boat tonight."

Harrison says his friend was not wearing a life vest and cannot swim.
