Officials did not say when Evans’ body was found, but crews continued searching Sunday morning with three extra airboats given by the Texas Department of Public Safety.

A search of Evans’ body was halted Saturday due to increasingly difficult conditions in the river.

Spc. Evans was a 22-year-old from Arlington, Texas, where he attended Mansfield High School. He joined the Texas Army National Guard in May of 2019 and was assigned to the 4-133 Field Artillery Regiment in New Braunfels.

Evans was also a member of Operation Spartan Shield in Kuwait during the fall of 2020.

The TMD says Evans’ dedication, talents and tactical prowess led him to also be regularly assigned to support Special Operations Forces in Iraq.
