A body found near Corpus Christi appears to be a Splendora man who vanished while fishing with his children. Investigators say the body washed ashore near Corpus Christi a few days ago. They suspect it's Bobby Alexander, 38, whose boat capsized near an oil rig off the coast of Port O'Connor Sunday. Rig workers rescued Alexander's two teenage sons, but Alexander drifted out of sight before the workers could reach him.

An autopsy will be conducted after Memorial Day.
