2 bodies, believed to be a father and his teen daughter, recovered from Texas river

The bodies of a man and a teenage girl, believed to be father and daughter, were recovered from the San Jacinto River near Houston, Texas, officials say.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, in a post on X, said that deputies with the department responded to a call for possible drownings around 7 p.m. Sunday at the Xtreme Off Road Park & Beach in Crosby, about half an hour from Houston.

Two people, said to be a father and daughter aged approximately 38 and 14 respectively, "had not resurfaced from the water," Gonzales said in the post.

Divers and marine unit boats arrived at the scene and were able to recover the body of the teenager Sunday night, Gonzalez said. The body of the adult male was recovered Monday morning.

Swimmers went missing Sunday

The Crosby Volunteer Fire Department said in a news release Sunday that a male and female swimmer "went missing off of Xtreme Beach in the river."

The Xtreme Offroad Park & Marina has "over a mile and a half of San Jacinto River frontage and beach," according to the park website. The park could not immediately be reached for a comment on the incident.

Authorities did not specify how the incident occurred or the cause of the victims' deaths.

"We are still trying to determine how this tragic incident occurred," Senior Deputy Thomas M Gilliland said in an email to USA TODAY Monday.
