BRAITHWAITE, La. (AP) - Authorities say foul play is suspected in the disappearance of a Ukrainian crew member of a bulk carrier anchored in the Mississippi River near Braithwaite in Plaquemines Parish.

The Plaquemines Sheriff's Office tells The Times-Picayune that 27-year-old Igor Yavorskyyne was ordered by his ship's captain to investigate an incident of intoxicated crewmates on Friday.

The sheriff's office says a red blood-like substance was found later on the ship's main upper deck.

Upon being notified of that discovery, the ship's captain ordered a count of all personnel aboard the ship, at which time it was discovered that Yavorskyy was missing.
