GALVESTON, TX (KTRK) -- Crews have found the body of a boater missing since Wednesday.

A good Samaritan called the coast guard after coming across an unmanned 17-foot shallow-water boat Wednesday afternoon. The engines of the boat were running but only a dog was onboard.

A helicopter took off this morning from Ellington Field to search west Galveston Bay. The Coast Guard will only identify the boater as a 50-year-old man.

They are not releasing any details of the recovery.
