Port Mansfield, Texas - The body of a local man missing since Thursday when his plane crashed has been found.

A Texas Parks and Wildlife official confirms 39 year old Harvey Kinikin's body was found this afternoon and pulled from the waters of Laguna Madre.

That is also where his passenger, 48 year old Robert Robinett of Sunray, was found on Friday.

Wreckage from the twine engine plane was found there as well.

The plane took off from Tradewinds Airport Thursday night and made a quick stop in Borger where Kinikin picked up Robinett, his brother in law.  The two were headed to Port Mansfield, near Brownsville on the coast, for a family fishing trip.

The Federal Aviation Administration is now investigating the crash.
