Law enforcement officials are investigating the drowning of a three-year-old at Lake Corpus Christi that occurred on Saturday afternoon.

The National Coastal Guard was called in to assist with a search and rescue operation. The search ended at approximately 11 p.m with no sight of the child who was later identified by family members as Aiden Gonzalez.

Gonzalez was the son of Jacob Ernesto Gonzalez, and Amanda Lee Galvan and step-father Jesse Chris Trevino.

The family had gone to the lake for the day. The young boy fell in the water near the Lakeshore Subdivision.

The search restarted at approximately 7 a.m. Sunday morning. Shortly after the search began Aiden's body was found floating near the Caramel Hills area.

It is unclear how the child ended up in the water. The investigation is ongoing.
