Bodies of two missing boaters body found in Toledo Bend

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, LDWF, agents are investigating a fatal boating incident that happened on March 11 in Sabine Parish on Toledo Bend.
 
Agents recovered the body of George Diboll, 62, of Oakdale, on Toledo Bend around 8 p.m. on March 12. Agents did recover the second body on March 15th as well as the boat.
 
Agents were notified around 3:30 p.m. on March 12 about two overdue boaters in Toledo Bend. Agents immediately began searching the area. According to friends, the two missing boaters launched their 18-foot vessel around 10 a.m. on March 11 from Solan’s Boat Launch to fish.
 
Agents suspect bad weather led to this fatal boating incident. The weather on March 11 changed mid-day as a cold front pushed through making the temperature in the high 20s and nearly 30 mile per hour winds.

The body of Diboll was recovered with an improperly worn or fitted personal flotation device and turned over to the Sabine Parish Coroner’s Office to determine an official cause of death.
