July 8, 2012
CAMILLA, Texas (AP) - Authorities say the body of a 6-year-old boy who disappeared on a family fishing trip on the Trinity River has been found.
Search teams found the Harris County boy Saturday about 20 yards from where his family lost sight of him a day earlier at Lake Livingston. Captain Carl Jones of the San Jacinto County Sheriff's Office said the death was accidental and that no charges are expected to be filed.
Jones said the child's body had been stuck under a log in water about 7 to 8 feet deep.
Jones said the area where the boy disappeared was "very dangerous" with unpredictable currents. More than 30 people searched for the child in the woods around the lake, in addition to the boats combing the water.
