CORPUS CHRISTI (September 1, 2013)—U.S. Coast Guard and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department personnel were searching Sunday for a fisherman who failed to return from a fishing trip in San Antonio Bay.
The Coast Guard identified the missing man as Joseph Ames, 62, and said he has gray hair and was wearing fishing attire.
The Coast Guard received a report Friday afternoon that the man was overdue.
Nearly three hours later, at 5:50 p.m., crews with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department found Ames' boat in the bay, but the man was not on board.
Crews are using helicopters, jets and boats in the search.
