    His body was discovered on Monday afternoon.

    The Denton County Sheriff's Office tells NBC 5 they believe the man to be George Rodriguez who disappeared on Friday night.

    On Sunday morning, before 11 a.m., emergency crews got a call about a father from Frisco who was missing.

    Kemp said the man was tubing with his family, his child fell off the tube, and the man jumped in to help, but never resurfaced.

    The Frisco father's body was recovered late Monday afternoon.

    Authorities say they don't believe either of the men were wearing life jackets.

    Sonar was used in the search and recovery operations.

    Two confirmed drownings brings the lake's total to three drownings, according to the Lewisville Fire Department.

    In June, Jaquis Jones, a star high school football player from Carrollton lost his life in the lake.
