TIKI ISLAND, Texas — A body has been found in the search for a man who went missing while swimming near Tiki Island Saturday night. That's according to the Galveston County Sheriff's Office.
The medical's examiner's office will have to confirm the person's identification.
The discovery comes as boats and drones were used this weekend to find 21-year-old David Gonzalez.
Family members said he was in the water near a boat ramp and railroad tracks with them around 7:30 p.m. He reportedly decided to swim further out on his own and that's the last time they saw him.
While the water near the shoreline is shallow, there's a steep drop-off about 50 yards out, officials said.
They suspended the search around 3 p.m. on Sunday but said they would resume if there are any sightings of Gonzalez.
According to National Weather Service data, tides in the area were relatively stable in the area Saturday evening but were about 3.1 feet above normal at high tide.
Galveston Beach Patrol is also warning their red flags are flying again today indicating strong and potentially dangerous rip currents.
