The body of a third child was recovered late last night in the search for three missing siblings who were overcome by waves while swimming at Sylvan Beach in La Porte.
In a Tweet, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said the third child is believed to be a 7-year-old boy. Two of his other siblings, a 10-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl, also died.
Gonzalez said deputies responded to reports of four juveniles who possibly went beyond a water safety buoy. However, that information is still preliminary, and deputies are also looking into whether a large boat went by, creating rough waters.
The children's parents were in the area, according to deputies.
