The family of a man who was found dead last night after vanishing while on a fishing trip with his son have issued a heartbreaking statement thanking the community for their help.
Matthew Meinert, 38, had taken his son Oliver to Grapevine Lake in Texas on Monday, but concern grew when his boat was found empty on the shore that evening.
Two-year-old Oliver was found alone in woodland the next morning with cuts and scratches but otherwise in good health.
Police announced last night that Matthew’s body had been found in the water following a four-day search.
