Precinct 1 Constables Office Marine Division working in conjunction with Fire Boat 94 and her divers located the missing swimmer at approximately 10:42 pm, in approximately ten (10) feet of water. Investigators believe that the victim was attempting to catch a boat that was adrift. The victim was identified as Walter D. Prescott, W/M, 65yoa, from Tomball, Texas.
All visitors using Lake Conroe are encouraged to wear Personal Floatation Devices (PFD) while using the lake. Everyone is reminded, that if a boat, kayak or other watercraft goes adrift, do not attempt to enter the water to retrieve it. The wind and waves can usually move the vessel faster than you can swim.
