HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

There's now an expanded search underway for the worker still missing after an oil platform explosion.

Katy-based Black Elk Energy says three dive boats are now working in the Gulf of Mexico.

Searchers found the body of a second missing worker, 42-year-old Philippine native Elroy Corporal on Nov. 17, a day after the explosion.

In addition to the one dead and one missing worker, four Filipino contract workers are being treated for serious burns.
