    Eagle Mountain Lake

    A body recovered from Eagle Mountain Lake Monday morning may be that of a missing man.

    Officers with the Tarrant Regional Water District were called after a person spotted a body floating face down near Power Squadron Road. 

    Firefighters with the Azle Fire Department were dispatched and confirmed the person, a white male, to be deceased.

    Officials said the man appeared to match a description of a missing person being sought in the area by the Tarrant County Sheriff's Department.

    While the descriptions of the two men are consistent, a positive identification has not been released by police.

    The Tarrant County medical examiner is investigating the man's death and will issue a formal report at a later time.
