The Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife
The Herald Banner, Greenville, TX - Lake Tawakoni search called off
Game Warden Craig Hernandez with the Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife said searchers had been back out on the lake since early in the morning and had found nothing."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.
Texas Parks and Wildlife game warden Craig Hernandez and Jason Bussy arrived on the scene and restrained the alligator's mouth and legs before taking it away.When Hernandez hopped in the truck with the alligator, trying to pose it for a picture, the alligator went a little wild, which caused everyone who was standing around the truck to jump back and caused one woman to scream and run for cover.Hernandez said this is the first alligator he's had to deal with in five years.This is the second alligator that has been found in the region within the last several weeks, with a smaller alligator being found in Wood County."We don't see a lot of them in this area," he said."This is the only one I've had to deal with that's a nuisance, meaning one that's brave enough to come into a public area.For an alligator to come in this area tends to throw a red flag up."Hernandez didn't have any clue as to where the alligator came from, but he said that since it's mating season, the alligator was either looking for a mate or already has a mate."So, we'll probably have more problems like this," he said.Craig Hernandez, game warden with the Texas Parks and Wildlife, poses a seven-foot alligator for a picture in the back of his truck at the D W Distribution wholesale lumber yard Wednesday morning.

Game Warden Craig Hernandez said he was called by the Hunt County Sheriff's Office to a site along the shore of Lake Tawakoni about 5 p.m. Wednesday and recovered the body from the location known as Ice Point."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.
