DALLAS – The search is over for a man who went missing on White Rock Lake over the weekend. The Dallas Police Dive Team recovered the body of 80-year-old Conrad Callicoatte Monday afternoon.

Dallas police say Callicoatte and a woman were on the water Sunday afternoon when their boat capsized, throwing both into the water as the boat flipped. The woman was pulled to safety by a White Rock patrol boat, but Callicoatte, who was not wearing a life jacket, could not be located.

The Dallas Fire-Rescue Swift Water Rescue Team worked with Dallas police and the Texas Game Warden in the search Sunday afternoon and evening before suspending, then resuming Monday morning.

Callicoatte was a seasoned sailor with 40 years of experience and member of the White Rock Boat Club. Boat club commodore Robert Hunt described Callicoatte as the club’s most experienced sailor.
