    A game warden with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department confirmed a search was taking place near a fishing pier at Willow Grove Park.

    The man's body was found at about 11:15 a.m.

    While officials have also not confirmed the man's identity, Capt. Cliff Swafford with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department said the man was wading or fishing in shallow water along the shoreline when he apparently went over a drop off and drowned.

    The investigation into the man's death is being conducted by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
