    Texas Parks and Wildlife game wardens resumed the search for Michael Quach, they believe he drowned at Lake Lewisville Sunday.

    Search crews with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department say they found the body of a man who drowned at Lake Lewisville on Father's Day.

    Game wardens say the body of 38-year-old Michael Quach, of Melissa, was recovered early Wednesday morning west of the Hidden Cove marina.

    According to Quach's family, they were on the boat just southwest of Hidden Cove when a family member jumped into the water to cool down. The person was not considered a strong swimmer and was wearing a life jacket, but the boat soon started to drift away from the swimmer's location.

    Texas Parks and Wildlife game wardens resumed the search for Michael Quach, they believe he drowned at Lake Lewisville Sunday.

    The Quach jumped in, without a life jacket, to help his nephew but went under the water and never surfaced.

    Quach's wife described him as a caring man who loved the water; that’s why they were spending Father’s Day on the lake, she said. Quach's two children were on the boat at the time.

    Choppy water and poor visibility hampered search efforts earlier in the week.
