MATAGORDA, Texas (AP) - A body discovered on a beach along the Texas Gulf Coast near Matagorda is believed to be a swimmer who went missing off Matagorda Beach just east of the Colorado River along the Texas Gulf Coast.

The Coast Guard says the body was spotted Sunday by a fisherman.

A companion of the missing 24-year-old man told authorities he and his friend were swimming Saturday afternoon. He made it to shore but his friend did not.

A Coast Guard search that began Saturday and involved crews aboard a helicopter, a twin-engine fixed-wing aircraft and a 45-foot boat has been called off.
