North of Lewisville Lake in Aubrey, a female drowned in a pond. The name and age of that person has not been released.

And divers recovered the body of a 77-year-old man who drowned in Clear Creek in Denton County. 

The man’s wife reported him missing Tuesday afternoon. Crews had to suspend the search because it was dark, and the water was moving too quickly after recent rain.

He was found about 100 yards downstream from where he fell in north of Highway 380 and west of Highway 377.
