Searchers Friday found the body of a missing Jasper County fisherman.

The body of Clyde Morgan, 69, was found at 7:35 a.m. approximately 400 yards from Rattle Snake Island. Rescue workers say the discovery was made between Rattle Snake and Rock Islands.

Morgan was reported missing earlier this week after he launched his boat from the Twin dikes boat ramp, but failed to return. His aluminum boat was found about 2 miles from where he launched it.

Morgan's remains were taken to a funeral home in Kirbyville.
