The U.S. Coast Guard suspended its search for an Indian tanker crewman, Ram Mohan Singh, reported missing from the 598-foot crude oil tanker Rainbow Quest near Southwest Pass, Wednesday.

Coast Guard crews searched for 44 hours in a search area of 1,179 square miles approximately five miles south of Southwest Pass in an effort to locate Singh.

Watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector New Orleans received a report from the Rainbow Quest that Singh was missing after an 8 a.m. muster, Tuesday. The Hong Kong-flagged ship conducted sweeps of the vessel with negative results; no life jackets were reported missing. Singh was last seen Monday at 9 p.m. wearing an orange jump suit.

Sector New Orleans watchstanders dispatched two HC-144 Ocean Sentry aircrews from Coast Guard Aviation Training Center Mobile in Mobile, Ala., four MH-65 Dolphin helicopter and crews from Coast Guard Air Station New Orleans, two 45-foot Response Boat — Medium boatcrews from Coast Guard Station Venice, and a crew aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Pelican, an 87-foot patrol boat homeported in Abbeville.

The search is suspended pending further developments.
