A two-day search for the chief of the Kemah (TX) Police Department ended Sunday morning when his body was found not far from where he fell overboard from his boat without a life-jacket in the Galveston Bay.

According to the Houston Chronicle, 50-year-old Chris Reed was boating with his wife when the wake from a large vessel struck his boat, sending him into the water.

The search for Reed involved 19 agencies and 25 volunteer vessels.

A police escort carried Reed's body away from the water.
