Schantz, the President of Houston-based Sequent Energy Management was last seen on a security video Friday. Police believe he fell in the river near a ferry boat dock.

Schantz was in New Orleans to give Tulane University a $25,000 gift during a reception Thursday. After the dinner, he and colleagues went to Bourbon Street around midnight.

It does not seem that Schantz was the victim of foul play, he had all his jewelry and credit cards on him.
