At approximately 9am this morning the body of Augusta Newmeyer age 23 was found a short distance from where she jumped off the “Just For Fun” party boat Monday night.
Monday night Precinct 1 Lake Patrol, North Montgomery Fire Department, Montgomery Fire Department and the U.S. Coast Guard started the search just off Bentwater where the boat with thirty people on-board was anchored.

It was reported that Newmeyer who was a Houston Baptist University Student from Rosenburg jumped into the dark waters and was going to swim to shore.
Additional crews from Equisearch and Texas Parks and Wildlife entered the search on Tuesday.

Early Wednesday morning crews started the search again when Newmeyer surfaced.
