A man who went missing after a boat crash in Lake Houston has been identified.


Family and friends reported it was Niesen who was missing, and they told ABC13 that Niesen had an intellectual disability.

"He's my life. We were planning to get married this year," said Niesen's fiancé Shirley Espiritu.

Espiritu last saw Niesen late Saturday morning, when he left home to go out on his long-time friend Robert Ray's boat.
