Body of Texarkana man found in Lake Wright Patman


TEXARKANA, Texas (KTAL/KSHV) — The body of a Texarkana man has been found in Lake Wright Patman.

According to Texas Game Warden Captain Shawn Hervey, around 4:30 p.m. Sunday Bowie and Cass County Game Wardens were called to ramp 3 regarding a missing boater who was identified as 41-year-old Joseph Travis Tyler, of Texarkana Texas.

Hervey said Tyler dropped his wife off at a boat ramp and made a loop in the boat to get ready to load it but never returned. Tyler’s wife then called 911 but before authorities arrived other boaters found him floating face down in the water about half a mile from the boat ramp toward Clear Springs Campground and the boat was found down by the camp grounds swimming areas.

The investigation into Tyler’s death is ongoing.
