Body found in Brays Bayou in southeast Houston

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Houston police are investigating a body found in Brays Bayou.

The body was found around 9am in the 5200 block of Carrolton St. Police say the manager of a construction site saw the body floating in Brays Bayou and immediately called 911.

HPD's dive team was dispatched and they pulled the body out. They don't have an ID yet, but tell us it was a man.

There is no word on his race, age, or whether foul play was involved. All that will be determined by the Medical Examiner's Office.

Eyewitness News spoke with a woman at the scene who says she's relieved that it wasn't her missing daughter that they found.

"I came out here to see if the body that was here was of my missing 13-year old Ariel Mendez. And so now that I know it's not, I have to keep looking for her," said Liza Mendez, mother of missing daughter.

This is the third body found in a Houston bayou this week. The body of 36-year old Jason Boyle was found in Buffalo Bayou Monday after his kayak overturned last Friday. And another man was found dead and without any clothes in White Oak Bayou Sunday.
