Cesar Aparicio, age 6, was swimming with family members near the mouth of the Brazos River on Tuesday, July 3, 2007 and was swept away into the open waters.

A volunteer searcher in a private plane spotted the body on a remote stretch of uninhabited beach, Pynes said late Friday. The boy’s body was taken to the Galveston County Medical Examination’s office. Funeral arrangements are being made and will be provided as soon as we have them. Please continue to pray for this family.
