The Herald Banner, Greenville, TX - Lake Tawakoni search called off
"It is still unknown if we even have a victim involved with this," Hernandez said."Unless we get some more information, we are going to call off the search as of now."Units with the Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife, Hunt County Sheriff's Office and the East Tawakoni and West Tawakoni police departments responded to the bridge shortly after 4 p.m. Wednesday, after reports that a man had jumped from the middle of the bridge into the lake.A command post was established at Kenny's Landing on the East Tawakoni side of the bridge and a dive team from the Commerce Emergency Corps was called in, Hernandez and other game wardens searched the surface of the reservoir.Hernandez said rescue crews began considering canceling the search during the afternoon."We've had a little bit of a change in some of the stories from the witnesses," Hernandez said."I'm not entirely certain the person didn't make it to shore."Hernandez said anything could have happened, but that the units had nothing further to go on."We have not even had a report of anyone missing," Hernandez said.
"I guess it is about two miles or so (from the bridge), straight distance," Hernandez said, adding it was "likely" the victim of the crash more than two weeks ago, but that the body had yet to be identified.
