TEXAS CITY, Texas (AP) – Searchers say the body of a 40-year-old man who fell off a boat southeast of Houston has been recovered.

Texas EquuSearch, an organization that assists in searches for missing people, says the body was discovered Saturday night. Those searching for the man after he fell off the boat Friday evening include members of the U.S. Coast Guard.

The man was not wearing a lifejacket when he fell off a boat he had been riding in a lake near Texas City.

The body was located using sonar by Texas Equusearch crews.
