Second Missing Boater Identified

HOUSTON – At 1:15 p.m. this afternoon, the Jefferson County Medical Examiner identified the victim located earlier today as that of Mr. Bill Harris.

Mrs. Martha Harris, Mr. Harris’ wife, was located Sunday evening in the same general area. The couple were reported missing Sunday afternoon after a bystander noticed their boat had run aground with the engines still running and no one inside.

Coast Guard helicopter and boat crews, Texas Parks and Wildlife, Seabrook and Kemah police and fire crews, and Texas EquuSearch repeatedly searched nearly 100 square miles of Galveston Bay over the past three days before both Mr. and Mrs. Harris were located.
