GRAYSON COUNTY, TX -- The body of the man who disappeared from a Grayson County marina has been found.

Family members from Fort Worth say the body of Honorio Oronia, 43, was found around 6:30 p.m. Oronia leaves behind a wife and a 10-year-old daughter.

Officials say he was working construction and was helping his boss with a boat at his boat slip at the Eisenhower Yacht Club on Friday. But when the boss returned Saturday, there was no sign of him.

Oronia's truck is still parked there and relatives went from visible anguish to patient waiting -- waiting and hoping that he would turn up alive.

"We've walked around. We've gone to where we can pretty much and there's just, we can't see anything," says niece Karla Conchas.

Earlier Sunday, relatives said they had gotten some information that had them feeling more hopeful.

"There was a call made out from his cell phone this morning at 8:50 and that there was also a call made out to his voice mail and that's why we have hope that he's out there in the woods hurt," says relative Gloria Conchas. "It's just very suspicious to us how everything happened and we don't have any witnesses, only his boss, but he's not here."

Relatives say they found Oronia's truck parked not far from the marina office, his hat and wallet sitting locked inside.

"His truck is here. His wallet's here. It seems like after he left his truck, he never came back," says Gloria Conchas.

Park officials say Texas Parks and Wildlife game wardens and Army Corps park rangers were back out with sonar and a hook, searching Sunday morning, but left around midday.

Relatives say they were growing frustrated. "What we were doing was ourselves just walking through the small areas where we could, but I mean, we don't know the area," says Gloria Conchas.

"He's not the type of person that would do something like this. He's not the type of person that would just disappear," says Karla Conchas. "He knows that he means everything to his daughter, and he means everything to us and his wife, so I don't understand why he would just leave."
