Body found in search for missing fisherman last seen in east Houston

Levin Revolorio, 34, was fishing from the banks of Buffalo Bayou while talking to his wife on the phone when the line suddenly went dead.

HOUSTON — A body has been found in the search for a missing fisherman who disappeared Saturday in east Houston, according to police.

Levin Revolorio, 34, was fishing near Tony Marron Park in the 800 block of North York Street. 

His wife said they were talking on the phone when the line suddenly went dead. 

On Tuesday, Glendis Muy stood on the edge of Buffalo Bayou as boats from HPD and Texas Equusearch looked for any sign of her husband.

Officers broke the news to the the family of 34-year-old Levin Revolorio just after 5 p.m.

 The couple has been together almost 14 years and have three kids together.

Glendis was praying they would him alive.

"I pray to God that they find him, but I know he's not here. He's not here," she told us before the body was found. "What I am feeling right now, I don't even wish on my worst enemy. It's so hard what I'm going through because I miss him so much."

Glendis said she found her husband's clothes, cellphone and a necklace he vowed to never take off at the scene. 

EquuSearch used sonars as they scanned the water before the body was found, but they ran into challenges because of the depth.

"It's a tough spot to sonar for some reason. It just goes from three foot to four foot to 22 feet. It just drops off, " EquuSearch founder Tim Miller said. "I've got stuff that I'm certainly interested in that looks pretty good but I can't say positively that it's it."

A medical examiner will determine the official identification.

Resources when someone goes missing

Thousands of people go missing every year across the United States, and there are organizations and law enforcement agencies that work to bring them home to loved ones. 

The Texas Center for the Missing is an organization with Houston roots that works to educate loved ones and authorities on finding the lost. 

From resources that deal with missing children to endangered adults, the non-profit organization has compiled a wealth of resources to help. 

There is no 24-hour waiting period required to report a person missing, according to the Harris County Sheriff's Office.
