TEXAS CITY, Texas —The U.S. Coast Guard has now confirmed that the body of Kemah Police Chief Chris Reed has been recovered near the Texas City Dike on Sunday.
More than a dozen local state, and federal agencies spent the weekend scouring land and water after a wave knocked Reed from a large vessel around 4 p.m. Friday about two miles north of the Texas City Dike. The 50-year-old was not wearing a life jacket.
A makeshift command center was set up on the dike, with first responder vehicles from all over the Houston-Galveston region parked near a boat launch. About 40 vessels were involved in the search.
