Authorities are searching Galveston Bay in Texas for a local police chief who was knocked overboard from a fishing boat.
Chris Reed, who serves as police chief for Kemah, Texas, was knocked off the boat by a larger passing vessel near Texas City, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.
Reed’s wife called 911 to report her husband had fallen overboard at about 4 p.m. local time, authorities said.
The Coast Guard searched both by water and air, but had not found Reed as of late Friday night. Reed is a former Army paratrooper who took over as Kemah police chief two years ago. He has three adult children.
