Tarrant County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a reported drowning Aug. 12 on Power Squadron Road near Pelican Bay.

While Tarrant Regional Water District officers ultimately had jurisdiction in the case, the drowning victim was identified as a missing person in a case deputies were investigating.

“We got the call at 7:57 [that] morning,” said TCSO spokesman Terry Grisham. “We received another call at 7:45, just a few minutes prior. The caller said her husband was missing; he had been camping for two days. We opened a missing persons report at that time.”
