Louisiana wildlife agents recover 2 bodies from bayou

Posted September 15

— Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries enforcement agents have recovered the bodies of two men from Bayou Teche in St. Martin Parish.

Agents on Thursday recovered the bodies of 21-year-old Reese Hebert and 20-year-old Timothy Guidry, both of Breaux Bridge, from the waterway just south of Breaux Bridge.

Agents received a call around 1 p.m. about two men who were missing after not returning from a fishing trip. The department says the two men had gone fishing from a pirogue around 1 a.m. Thursday. After not returning from the trip, the mother of one of the men searched the bayou and found a partially sunken pirogue and alerted authorities.

Officials say the bodies have been turned over to the St. Martin Parish Coroner's Office to determine a cause of death.
