Authorities say a body found Tuesday morning in Lake Whitney is a man who went under during a boat trip Sunday.
They have identified the man as 64-year-old Richard Melton.
The search started Sunday around 5 p.m. when authorities received a report that Melton went into the water and failed to resurface. They say the family launched a pontoon boat from McCown Valley Park.
Authorities say Melton went into the water to cool down, but he didn’t have a life jacket on. The boat drifted away from him and he couldn’t stay afloat.
Search crews recovered his body at 11 a.m. Tuesday.
