Update: Weather halts law enforcement authorities’ search

NEAR MISSION — Precinct 3 Hidalgo County Constable Larry Gallardo clarified earlier reports of an unidentified body being found off Inspiration Road, saying Monday evening that a body was not found after all.

He explained that a search for a body had been underway before inclement weather halted these efforts, and that law enforcement authorities have yet to substantiate reports of a deceased person in the area as a result.

It was unclear as of press time what exactly led authorities to conduct such a search.
