Lost in the Gulf

Ophelia, Nate and Maria

VILLAHERMOSA, Mexico (AP) -- Mexico's state oil company says it's
searching for 10 workers from a company based in Texas.

The workers evacuated from a research vessel in the Gulf of Mexico ahead of
Tropical Storm Nate. And they called for help after abandoning
their vessel on an enclosed life raft.

The life raft is a sealed capsule with enough food and water for several days, but there's no way to communicate with it.
