Coast Guard leading effort to find fisherman reported missing in Dickinson Bay

The U.S. Coast Guard is working together with Texas City police and firefighters to find a man who was last seen wade fishing in Dickinson Bay near the town of San Leon.

The missing man is identified as Danny Joseph Kenney, 26, described as standing at a height of 6-feet tall, weighing 180 pounds, with red hair. He wore a white shirt, brown pants and an orange life vest.

The Texas City Police Department contacted the Coast Guard after Kenney's father had contacted officers. Kenney had been fishing with his father early on Wednesday morning when his father left him to wade fish. Kenney's father continued fishing from his boat and was later unable to find Kenney.
