PORT ARTHUR, Texas (AP) - Police say the bodies of a father and son have been recovered after both accidentally drowned during a Southeast Texas fishing trip.

Port Arthur police say searchers Wednesday morning located the body of 34-year-old Carlos Thomas of Manor (MAY’-nor).

Some people in a kayak on Tuesday discovered a body near Sabine (suh-BEEN’) Pass . Police identified that victim as 61-year-old Floyd Thomas Jr. of Beaumont.

Maj. Raymond Clark says it appears both men drowned in a tragic accident.

The search began when a truck was found near the Sabine Pass jetty with evidence that two men went fishing but neither could be located.
