Texas EquuSearch Find the Body of Missing Jacob Langley
The Coast Guard and members of Texas EquuSearch have been hard at work since the weekend in search of missing 24-year-old Jacob Langley. Langley went missing after a fishing boat he was on hit a pilling under the water that caused all passengers on board to be ejected from the craft.
Accident on the Colorado River
Jacob Langley was on board a fishing boat with friends when the boat came in contact with a pilling under the water. The collision knocked all the passengers on the boat into the water. Langley was not accounted for after the accident, three others suffered minor injuries. Langley is the nephew of a 16-year-veteran with Texas EquuSearch, so after the coast guard had to call off their search for Jacob on Sunday, Texas EquuSearch stayed out to continue to look for him.

KIIItv reports that Jacob's body was discovered by his Uncle who has spent 16 years with Texas EquuSearch. Jacob was discovered about half a mile from the scene of the original accident on the Colorado River just after 6 p.m. on Monday evening.
