The body of a 26-year-old man lost in Calaveras Lake after his boat capsized has been found. Texas game wardens found a body Monday near shore of the lake about 10 miles southeast of San Antoniothe lake shore and said they believe it's that of Daniel Galindo Jr. The Bexar County medical examiner will need to make positive identification, but authorities believe the body is Galindo's based on tattoos and boots the man was wearing.

Authorities began looking for Galindo after his 12-foot boat capsized while he and three others were fishing around midnight Saturday.

Game Warden Capt. Danny Villalobos said the boat was overloaded and only one of the passengers was wearing a life vest. The other three passengers safely swam to shore.
