Man jumps into water, body found one day later
BOLIVAR PENINSULA- by Haley Bull

The body of a man missing for more than 24 hours near Rollover Pass was found Sunday evening.

A spokesperson for the Coast Guard said the 31-year old man was intoxicated when he jumped into the water around 12:30 a.m. Saturday. Two friends with him reported seeing the man treading water, but lost sight of him and called 911.

"It was really, really rough that night. The current, the tide had just shifted," Rick Ferguson said. He was fishing nearby when the man jumped and his friends let people know someone was in the water.

"By the time we got down here one of his buddies had already walked across so that the last time that he saw him was on this side, going underneath the bridge," Ferguson said. "By the time he got to the other side they had lost sight of him."

The spokesperson said rescue crews searched for the man using helicopters and boats, but were unable to send in a dive team due to strong currents. Crews called off the search at 11:30 a.m. Saturday.

Officers said Sunday evening, someone fishing called the Galveston County Sheriff's Office after spotting the body near the area.
