Body recovered from Houston bayou after storms


Associated Press

HOUSTON — Divers have recovered a man's body from a Houston bayou where a pickup truck went off a road and into the water during heavy rain last weekend.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office also says initial reports that a second person was in the vehicle are believed wrong and the search has ended.

Members of a Houston police dive team on Tuesday located a body tentatively identified by relatives as a teen missing since last Friday night. His name wasn't released pending autopsy results.

The body was found in a bend of White Oak Bayou.
