Crews Work to Rescue Passengers on Capsized Boat

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.
