Authorities identified a body found in a Sugar Land waterway as a man reported missing from Brazoria County last month. Two men fishing in Oyster Creek near near Brooks Street and Highway 6 found Solis’ body at about 3:00 p.m. on Thursday.
As RARE previously reported, George Edgar Solis, 25, of Brazoria County went missing in late January.
After Solis went missing, searchers located his truck abandoned, running, and stuck in the mud near Sugar Land. His cell phone was inside.
His family suspected foul play because Solis would never leave his phone behind, as he needed it for a landscaping business he ran with his father.
“I think something suspicious happened,” his father, Jorge Solis, told KHOU after his son went missing. “And that’s what we’re afraid of.”
However, authorities disagree, saying there are no obvious signs of foul play.
A death investigation is ongoing.
