The search for a missing Lee County man has come to a sad ending after a state dive team found his body in a pond.
Authorities believe Lawrence Roberson, 34, of Lexington had an accident sometime Sunday. They say Roberson was northbound on FM 2440, but ran through the intersection of Highway 21, crashing through a fence and into a pond.
Roberson's truck was recovered Sunday, but his body was not found. A DPS dive team returned Tuesday and continued their search, eventually discovering Roberson's body.
An autopsy has been ordered.
