Body found in Lake Austin identified as missing ACL visitor

The Travis County Sheriff's Office has identified the body of the man who was recovered in Lake Austin on Monday afternoon. 

TCSO says the man has been identified as 25-year-old Christopher White who was in town for the Austin City Limits Music Festival. Friends had reported him missing on Saturday, October 6.

They reported they had last seen White early Saturday morning when he was intoxicated and mentioned he might want to go down to the dock. The friends left the home they had rented and came back in the afternoon. When they arrived back, they said White still wasn't there and they called authorities to report him missing. 

Around 1 p.m. Monday, a 9-1-1 caller reported seeing a body in Lake Austin. He was positively identified on Wednesday. 

TCSO says there is no evidence of foul play at this time.
