Body found in southeast Houston

- Texas EquuSearch has found a body on Holmes Road near Cullen Boulevard below the 610 South Loop bridge in southeast Houston. Police have not confirmed if the body is that of a 16-year-old Jefferson Davis High School student who was reported missing in the area on Saturday. The mother of the missing teen told police on Monday that attempts to find the student on Saturday and Sunday were unsuccessful. She told police that she believed he may have died in a wooded area near the apartment complex where her family lived. 

The search effort on Monday was also unsuccessful, which prompted volunteers from Texas EquuSearch to conduct another search on Tuesday at around 8 a.m. Tuesday. Volunteers found the body at around 9:20 a.m. Tuesday.
