TEXAS CITY, Texas -

The Coast Guard located the body of a wade fisherman missing off the Texas City Dike.

Officials said 42-year-old Michael Christian was wade fishing with a friend off the Texas City Dike Saturday night when he disappeared.

A Coast Guard crew discovered Christian's body late Saturday night about 100 feet from the dike.

"I feel for the family," said Zach Edwards, a search and rescue coordinator at Sector Houston-Galveston.  "This guy has obviously been doing this for a while and we launched as soon as we got notified.  Unfortunately he was deceased when he found him."

Texas City Police and Texas City Fire Department officials said they are now working to contact Christian's family members.
