FLORESVILLE -- Police and volunteer firefighters are searching a stretch of the San Antonio River here for a missing 22-year old Floresville man. Officials were called to the historic De La Zerda Cemetery off Goliad Road just after 8 p.m.
Lt. Jesse Evins of the Floresville Police Department said the man, described as a white male, was fishing along the river bank with friends when he is believed to have fallen into the river.
