HOUSTON – A body was recovered Thursday evening after officials searched for a man who was last seen jumping into a retention pond in Cypress Thursday afternoon.

Just before 4:30 p.m., officials responded to a Telge Ranch subdivision retention pond on the 14000 block of Sycamore Side Way.

Investigators said after the man jumped into the water and did not come up, a few people tried to jump in and search for him.

Boats and the Harris County dive team responded to the scene.

Almost four hours later, a body was recovered from the pond.
