The bodies of two men who disappeared in separate weekend drowning incidents on Lewisville Lake have been located by law enforcement officials.
A body believed to be an unidentified Dallas County man, who went missing Friday night, was found by a U.S. Army Corp of Engineers ranger Monday afternoon, officials said.
The body was located approximately 100 to 200 yards south of the State Highway 121 split at Lewisville Lake, according to Game Warden Chip Daigle.
The missing man is believed to have fallen off a double-decker party boat he was on with his family near The Colony at Pier 121 Marina, officials said.
The 33-year-old, who was not wearing a life jacket, went missing Friday around 9:15 p.m., Game Warden Logan Griffin said.
“The initial call came in around 1:50 [Monday afternoon]. That is when they believed to have located the body. We went out there and got it situated,” Griffin said.
Multiple agencies had been working on the search, including the Lewisville Fire Department, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and county boats, he said.
After it was secured, Griffin said the victim’s body was transported to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office for autopsy and official identification.
At 5:48 p.m. Monday, the body of a Frisco man, who went missing early Sunday afternoon, was located by Denton County sheriff’s deputies.
The man went missing after he fell from an inner tube he was riding on. He and his two children were being pulled by a boat driven by the man’s wife.
The two children, who were wearing life jackets, were recovered safely, but their father apparently went under near Hidden Cove, on the eastern half of the Lewisville Lake.
Griffin said the man was found in the middle of the main body of the lake northeast of the dam.
Once officials secured the body, it was transported to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office alongside the other recovered body for autopsy and official identification.
