9 Year Old Still Missing

There's still no sign of the missing 9-year-old boy, thought to have drowned on Lake Palestine last Tuesday. Cade Castleberry was last seen in a fishing boat that drifted off shore. Since Tuesday night, the search and recovery effort has been underway in Lakeway Harbor just across Lake Palestine from Coffee City in Smith County.

Crews have spent more than 50 hours dragging the lake bottom. Divers, and helicopters also searched for him, but were unsuccessful.

Today, the operation was scaled back. Game wardens will continue to do surface, and perimeter checks of the lake until his body is found.
