Family of Missing Mobile Man Talks to News 5

Posted: Updated:

The search for a BAE Systems employee who went missing after yesterday's wind storm turned into a recovery operation today. Authorities still haven't found the body of John "Buster" Johnson. Family members fear the worst.

Jonathan Owens sat down with John's wife Bernadette and his sister-in-law Cathy Perine this afternoon and talked about John's life. As family and friends gathered for moral support, John "Buster" Johnson's wife, Bernadette told us that beginning a new chapter in her life won't be easy.

John "Buster" Johnson was 64 years old - an age when a lot of people think about retirement, but he wanted to work just a little longer.

As the recovery operation proceeds, the Johnson family will continue celebrating the life of John. His wife tells us she will miss John, but is thankful for the love and support of her family and friends.  

A co-worker of John Johnson was pulled from the Mobile River yesterday and taken to the hospital. John's co-worker sustained non-life-threatening injuries. John and a co-worker had taken refuge inside a guard shack two docks down from the Carnival Triumph.
