Missing kayaker's body found in Trinity River

Body found on banks of Trinity River in Fort Worth

A jogger found a body on the banks of the Trinity River on Tuesday morning and authorities believe it could be missing kayaker Tyler Smith, fire officials said.

The jogger alerted firefighters about 10:35 a.m. Firefighters and a dive team had been searching for Smith since Monday.

The body was found in a remote area of the river 500 to 600 yards east of Gateway Park in Fort Worth, and the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office will make a positive identification.

Smith and his orange kayak had been missing since Sunday afternoon, fire officials said. He put in near the Fort Worth Rowing Club and may have been fishing, Fort Worth fire Battalion Chief Richard Harrison said.

Witnesses reported seeing a person matching his description in a kayak Sunday. None said the kayaker appeared to be in distress.

The man’s relatives told Fire Department personnel that they believe he entered the river about 1:30 p.m. Sunday at 1340 Beach St. — a typical location for kayakers, the Fire Department said in a statement.

Arlington firefighters had joined the search downstream.

“He was to meet up with the family later that evening, and he didn’t show up,” Harrison said Monday. “His family got some kayaks and began looking for him, but police told them to get out of the river.”

The man’s car was in the parking lot of the Fort Worth Rowing Club. His kayak had not been found.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
