Now the family has asked for prayers and answers.

“There is no closing yet. There is no closing yet,” said White’s other cousin, Rosemarie Reynolds.

After days and days of searching, White’s family was called to the 1000 block of CR 59 near Woodfin Road.

“We were devastated. We searched this property,” Harris said. “The detective flew his drone, he flew over the lake and he discovered that there was something above the lake. They ordered the [HPD’s] the dive team to come out, and that’s when they pulled him out.
