 A Coast Guard MH-65 helicopter crew located a body, Sunday, which fits the description of a man 

 
missing since Friday morning, in San Antonio Bay.
 
At 3:50 p.m., a Coast Guard aircrew spotted a body on the west side of San Antonio Bay, then guided a Texas Parks and 
 
Wildlife Department boatcrew to the location. TP&W recovered the body.
 
The Coast Guard in conjunction with TP&W, Aransas National Wildlife Refuge and numerous good Samaritans searched more than 46 
 
square miles from Sun Down Bay to Port O’Connor utilizing surface and air assets from Station Port O’Connor, Station Port 
 
Aransas and Air Station Corpus Christi before locating the body Sunday afternoon.
 
“Our thoughts, prayers, and deepest condolences are with the family," said Lt. Cmdr. Kristi Bernstein, the search and rescue 
 
mission coordinator at Sector Corpus Christi. "We are deeply saddened by the outcome today. The circumstances of this case 
 
are unclear, but boaters need to always be prepared for any situation when out on the water. Wearing a lifejacket and having 
 
a marine band radio will greatly assist in our search efforts if something does go wrong."
 
The body will be turned over to the local sheriff's office for a positive identification. The body was identified by next of 
 
kin at the coroner's office. TP&W continues to investigate the accident. Anyone with information can contact TP&W at 281-842
 
-8100.
