Body found in San Antonio Bay; search for missing boater halted

A Coast Guard helicopter found a body Sunday in south San Antonio Bay matching the description of a 48-year-old man missing since Friday morning.

A positive identification has not yet been conducted, Coast Guard spokesman Lt. Garrett Barker said. The name of the missing man has not been released.

The search began when a passer-by came across an unattended boat with its engine running about 7:30 a.m. Friday. The search has been halted while the body is being identified, Barker said.
