JASPER COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Authorities have discovered the body of a missing boater in Steinhagen Lake ending an hours-long search.
Captain Tom Jenkins with the Texas Parks and Wildlife says crews pulled the body of 62-year-old Selman Mobley of Tyler County from the lake just after 6 p.m. Wednesday. This was near the Highway 190 bridge in Jasper County.
A search had been underway for Mobley after a call to the Jasper County Sheriff's Office around 1:30 p.m. reporting two men floating in the water. Mobley went missing after a boat he and another man were in capsized Wednesday morning, Jenkins said. The second man was rescued.
The Jasper County Sheriff's Office and Emergency Corps also assisted in the search.
