Madison County Deputies are investigating after a man drowned Sunday evening at a private residence.

Officials say 50-year old Felipe Buendia Lopez of Dickinson drowned at 5:41 p.m. at a pond off FM 1372.

They say a 911 caller reported that a Lopez had been swimming with friends in the pond Sunday afternoon.

He was reportedly trying to cross the pond a final time when he went under and did not resurface.

A number of agencies were called to the scene.

Madison County officials searched the pond and around a pier but were unable to locate Lopez.

The College Station Fire Department and their dive team were then called into assist.

Sometime later, Lopez' body was found in the water.
