Accident on the Colorado River

Jacob Langley was on board a fishing boat with friends when the boat came in contact with a pilling under the water. The collision knocked all the passengers on the boat into the water. Langley was not accounted for after the accident, three others suffered minor injuries. Langley is the nephew of a 16-year-veteran with Texas EquuSearch, so after the coast guard had to call off their search for Jacob on Sunday, Texas EquuSearch stayed out to continue to look for him.
