The search for a fisherman who went missing in Toledo Bend Reservoir is over; KSLA reports the man's body has been found.

Authorities have been searching for the man, who has been identified as a Gonzales resident, for two days.

The search was concentrated near a boat launch at Tranquility Bay where the man's truck was found idling on Tuesday. The man's boat was found drifting near the launch.

Authorities were alerted after witnesses noticed a truck that had been parked and idling at the launch for several hours. The man’s wallet, keys and other personal belongings were still in the truck.
