(AP) Black Elk Energy has halted the search for a worker missing since Friday's explosion and fire aboard an oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico.


The missing crewman, Jerome Malagapo of the Philippines, was employed by Grand Isle Shipyard Inc., which had a contract with Black Elk to refurbish the platform.


The company said in a statement released Tuesday night that they would focus on the victims and their families, including those injured in the incident.


The body of 42-year-old Elroy Corporal was found over the weekend. Four workers who suffered burns during the platform fire are being treated at the Baton Rouge Medical Center.


The cause of the explosion and fire aboard the platform is under investigation.
