Diver participating in search for Fort Hood motorist dies

Posted: Updated:

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - A volunteer diver participating in the week-long search for a missing motorist at Fort Hood has died after being found in distress over the weekend at the sprawling Army post.   

Authorities said the unidentified diver was found Saturday along a creek that was part of the search area for the motorist believed to have been swept from a vehicle April 11 by rising floodwaters.   

The diver was taken to a medical center on the post and then transferred to a Temple hospital, where the person died Sunday.   

Officials say the diver was a volunteer with the dive team for Morgan's Point Resort, a town near Fort Hood along Belton Lake.   

The motorist went missing after up to 8 inches of rain fell in the region last week.
