Fats Domino, reported missing in the wake of Hurricane Katrina by both his niece and longtime agent Al Embry, was saved by boat.
The daughter of the seventy-seven-year-old rock legend, Karen Domino White, has positively identified Domino as being among a group of people photographed by the New Orleans Times-Picayune climbing onto a rescue boat near his devastated home in the Ninth Ward neighborhood.
The singer had last been heard from Sunday evening when he spoke to Embry and told his agent that he had no intentions of evacuating.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Famer is best known for the classic singles "Blueberry Hill" and "Ain't That a Shame." White is still awaiting word of Domino's wife, Rosemary, and other family members who were in New Orleans when the hurricane struck.
