One body recovered, two others still missing after boat overturns at Lake Lavon

Texas Game Wardens and Collin County Sheriff’s Office are investigating a fatal boating incident that occurred around sunset on Saturday evening.

At 8:45pm, a scattered storm with strong winds passed over Lake Lavon causing a small boat to overturn. The boat was occupied by four men. One of them was able to swim to a tree and call 9-1-1. He was later rescued by responding Game Warden personnel. The other three men were unable to be rescued.

Officials searched by air and ground during the night on Saturday, but the missing men were not located.

Early this morning, authorities located one body in the water. They continue to search for the other two individuals who presumably drowned.

Expect activity on the shoreline and in the water as officials work this scene.
