The search for 64-year-old Carlos Wootan is over.
Mobile County Sheriff’s Office FLOTILLA unit along the Mobile Police Department found the body of Carlos Wootan in the water north of Railroad Bridge around 10:30 a.m. Saturday. Wootan was found deceased.
No word on the cause of death, but forensic teams are on the scene.
On Tuesday night, Wootan’s truck was located on the I-65 overpass near Dead Lake Marina. Since the truck’s discovery, the search has been concentrated in that area.
Boats from FLOTILLA searched the waters for days and mounted officers on horseback began a ground search this morning.
Wootan’s family has been searching alongside the Sheriff’s Department and MPD since the truck was discovered. The family has been sweeping the woods near the marina for the past four days.
