Second man's body pulled from Benbrook Lake

Authorities have recovered the body of a second man who drowned in Benbrook Lake on Monday.

Searchers located the man's body about 12:45 p.m. Wednesday, said Jennifer Kemp, a lieutenant game warden.

The man in his 20s and 16-year-old Percibal Yovani Gonzalez-Sarmiento, a Salvadoran, disappeared Monday while swimming together, authorities said. Searchers recovered Gonzalez-Sarmiento's body Monday night.

The older man had not been indentified pending positive identification.

Texas Parks and Wildlife officials searched the lake until dark Tuesday and resumed the search at first light Wednesday morning, Kemp said.

The men's families reported them missing to a park attendant Monday afternoon.
