Drowning Victim's Body Found

The body of a missing 9-year-old boy who drowned in Lake Palestine was found this afternoon.

Cade Castleberry was in a boat that floated off the shore of Lakeway Harbor. Witnesses say he either jumped or fell overboard.

They say he struggled in the water for 20 minutes, but because of low lake levels, the witnesses were not able to get out their boats"to save him.

It's been one very long heartbreaking week, but today Texas game wardens were able to Cade Castleberry back to his family.

They all came here to the shores of Lakeway Harbor as game wardens gave them the news.

After countless hours of searching the cold lake waters, the body was found this afternoon.

 The family is now making funeral arrangements and trying to figure out how to move forward.
