    Two people are believed to be missing after a shrimp boat capsized in a bayou on the Texas Gulf Coast.

    Authorities say they rescued three people after the boat "Mr. Anthony" overturned Monday in the Cedar Bayou Channel.

    A Coast Guard spokeswoman tells the Houston Chronicle that two people have not been located yet.

    KTRK-TV reports that the boat is not sinking, but is trapped in mud under about 13 feet of water.
