Athens Man's Body Found In Neches River

The search for an Athens man last seen in the Neches River has come to an end.

The body of 53 year old Glen Wilcox was found around 10:00 pm Sunday night. 

Wilcox reportedly went missing around 8:00 pm Saturday night, just off Highway 21 between Weches and Alto.

Wilcox had jumped into the water to rescue his stepson and another boy from drowning. He was able to help the two boys, but unfortunately was not able to make it back to shore.
