Drowning at Lake Alan Henry

An abandoned boat at Lake Alan Henry prompted search for the owner on Sunday. It took authorities less than three hours to locate the body of 66 year-old Lee Gillis Maberry of Slaton. Maberry had been at the lake since Tuesday and last contacted his wife on Friday.

Lake goers say Maberry put his boat in the lake around 4 p.m. Saturday afternoon. The boat was noticed floating in the lake at 6 o'clock Sunday morning and then again at 12:30 p.m. Around 2:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon some passerby's noticed the boat was empty and contacted lake officials. Lubbock and Garza County dive teams were on standby, but it was a DPS helicopter that spotted Maberry's body at about 5:15 p.m. that evening. Maberry was not wearing a life vest.

Bill Morgan with the Lubbock Police Department says Maberry was well known by lake rangers from around the area and visited the lake often to run trot lines.
