A Marlin man is dead after he was found in the Brazos River on Wednesday.

Falls County Sheriff’s deputies, Texas Parks and Wildlife, Lorena PD and community members from all over had been searching for him since Tuesday night.

A helicopter and ATVs from local authorities and community members were also there to assist. 

According to deputies, the man – reportedly in his 30’s – was driving cattle across the Brazos River Tuesday night with another person, when he reportedly fell off his horse, fell into the river and drowned.

At this time, family members of the Moon River Ranch did not want to speak and are asking for prayers and privacy.

The Falls County Sheriff’s Department have declined to give FOX44 more information at this time.
