UPDATE: Coast Guard ends search for person in the water near Port O'Connor, Texas



CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas —The Coast Guard ended its search for a missing 19-year-old fisherman after a good Samaritan located a body matching his description Wednesday morning in Powderhorn Lake near Port O’Connor, Texas.

The search began Monday evening when Coast Guard Sector/Air Station Corpus Christi watchstanders were notified that a friend reported last seeing the fisherman going underwater and never resurfacing. Watchstanders issued an urgent marine information broadcast and launched Air Station Corpus Christi HC-144 Ocean Sentry and MH-65 Dolphin aircrews, and a Station Port O’Connor shallow-water boat crew to conduct the search.
