Sheriff: Search for missing Henderson Co. boater now a 'recovery effort'

Posted: Updated:
HENDERSON COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - What began as a search for a missing boater has now become a recovery effort.

Henderson County Sheriff Ray Nutt said Wednesday evening that a recovery effort is underway for a man who went into Cedar Creek Reservoir after his boat overturned.

The man's nephew was rescued from an island between Gun Barrel City and Seven Points. Authorities aren't sure how long the man had been on the island.

The man told officials he was in his boat fishing with his uncle when the boat flipped. He believes his uncle may have drowned in the lake. Officials have found the boat and are now searching for the possible drowning victim.
