Authorities in South Texas are investigating the death of a New Braunfels man found in the surf at the Padre Island National Seashore.

Kleberg County sheriff's officials say the death of 60-year-old Kevin Francis O'Toole is considered "questionable" but they don't immediately suspect foul play. The Nueces County Medical Examiner is conducting an autopsy.

A Virginia couple turned to social media for help on finding the family of a World War II veteran whose dog tag they found in their backyard.
