JEFFERSON PARISH, La. - The body of a 64-year-old man who had been missing since Wednesday morning, was found floating in the Barataria Waterway Friday morning, according to the JPSO.

Louis 'Bill' Adams, was apparently making his daily journey in his pirogue across the waterway from his home to his work on Wednesday, when he disappeared. His body was found by friends on Friday.

It is not sure what happened, but Wednesday morning the water was very choppy due to a series of storms that swept through the area.

Adam's pirogue and some of his belongings were found and the worst was suspected when the search began.

Adam's body was discovered near the edge of the waterway near the seafood dock where he worked. Friends had been searching virtually around the clock since he disappeared Wednesday.
