Missing Boater found at Lake O the Pines

The search for a boater who turned up missing at an East Texas lake is over after the body of a former Texas Tech football standout was found early Sunday morning. Marion county divers found the body of 33 year old Michael Briscoe near the overlook area of Lake O the Pines.

Investigators say Briscoe could not swim and was not wearing a life jacket when he fell off his boat. Divers had been looking for him since Thursday afternoon. Briscoe was alone on his boat when the accident happened.

He had recently moved to Longview with his wife from the Lubbock area.
