The search continues for the 13-year-old twin brothers who were reported missing at Pleasure Pier in Galveston on Sunday, March 5, according to the the Galveston Island Beach Patrol. Officials told KHOU 11 that the family of the teens spent about an hour searching for them before calling the police.
The family told officials that the twins went missing around 4:30 p.m. after last being seen swimming on the west side of the pier. Police said the family called 911 to report the boys once they saw them in the water about waist to chest deep. Officials said the family never saw the twins go under the water.
