    PORT ARANSAS — Coast Guard officials continued searching late Tuesday for a man who fell out of a boat earlier in the day about 40 miles off the shore of Port Aransas.

    The man identified as Ernesto Guerrero, who authorities said was born in 1971, was still missing late Tuesday, officials said. The Coast Guard planned to search through the night Tuesday and into today, said Petty Officer Kevin Curtis.

    Crew aboard the Capt. Eddie, a fishing vessel, noticed him missing about 3 a.m. Officials did not release his city of residence.
