CORSICANA, Texas (AP) - Crews are searching a North Central Texas lake for a missing man and his grandson after their fishing boat was found empty.
The pontoon boat of 72-year-old Jerry King was found drifting Tuesday night on Richland-Chambers Reservoir, near Corsicana. He and 17-year-old Jerrod Rachel were reported missing Monday evening.
Capt. Gary Dugan of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department says
lifejackets were found on board the boat, still wrapped in plastic. He speculates that one person may have fallen into the water and the other may have jumped in after him.
Dugan said Tuesday night that the water temperature was around 55 to 60 degrees.
