YOU CAN READ HIS ENTIRE SPEECH ON KSAT.COM. SEARCH CREWS THIS AFTERNOON HAVE FOUND A BODY BELIEVED TO BE THAT OF A MAN WASHED AWAY BY HIGH WATERS NEAR I-10 AND EL MONTE YESTERDAY. Ursula: THE BODY WAS FOUND IN A DITCH OFF OF I-10 AND FULTON AVENUE, NOT TOO FAR WHERE HE WAS LAST SEEN. STEPHANIE SERNA IS AT THE SCENE. STEPHANIE, HAVE AUTHORITIES CONFIRMED THAT THE BODY IS THAT OF THE MISSING MAN? Reporter: , NO, AUTHORITIES HAVE NOT CONFIRMED IT YET, URSULA BUT THEY DID FIND THE BODY ABOUT 1:30 THIS AFTERNOON. HOWEVER, WE TALKED TO FAMILY MEMBERS AND THEY BELIEVE THIS IS THE BODY OF THEIR FAMILY MEMBER. I FEEL GUILTY BECAUSE I COULDN’T SWIM BACK TOWARDS HIM. KENNETH SAID HE WAS LIVING WITH HIS BROTHER PAT RING AND ANOTHER MAN UNDER A BRIDGE WHEN FLOOD WATERS TOOK OVER. WHEN IT STARTED RAINING IT TOOK TEN MINUTES FOR THAT DITCH TO FILL UP AND SWEEP US AWAY. CREWS SEARCHED LAST NIGHT AND WERE OUT ON ATVs THIS MORNING. WE STOPPED SHORTLY AFTER DARK LAST NIGHT AND THEN THEY STARTED AT FIRST LIGHT THIS MORNING. SO WE HAVE BEEN WORKING OUR WAY BACK UP THE RIVER. Reporter: KENNETH’S SON CODY WAS ALSO OUT THIS MORNING SEARCHING FOR HIS UNCLE STILL HOPING THAT HE WOULD BE ALIVE. IT HURTS BECAUSE I KNOW THAT COULD HAVE BEEN MY DAD AND NOW MY UNCLE IS GONE BECAUSE OF THIS. AND PEOPLE THAT ARE HOMELESS OUT THERE NEED TO THINK ABOUT IT. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? GO TO A SHELTER. DON’T PUT YOUR LIFE IN DANGER AND OTHER PEOPLE’S LIVES AT RISK. AND THE MEDICAL EXAMINER WAS OUT HERE ON THE SCENE THIS AFTERNOON BUT HE HAS NOT OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED THAT THIS
