CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Two missing teens were found Wednesday afternoon by a Texas Game Warden search boat after spending the night floating in their life jackets in the middle of Lake Corpus Christi.
Texas Game Wardens and several area sheriff's departments were sent to the north side of Lake Corpus Christi to search for the two teens, who were reportedly among a group of four before they went missing Tuesday night.
