AUSTIN, Texas (AP) A fifth body has been recovered following storms and flooding in Central Texas.

The Comal County Sheriff's Office says the body of 26-year-old Samuel Rosson Jr. of Canyon Lake was located Sunday. A resident saw Rosson's body about 50 yards from where he fell into the rain-swollen Guadalupe River last Thursday while apparently trying to retrieve some items.

The bodies of a woman and her infant son were located Friday, a day after their vehicle was swept into Onion Creek in the Austin area.

Police say a man's body was recovered Thursday, also from Onion Creek.

The Caldwell County Sheriff's Office says another man died Thursday after driving on a flooded road and being swept out of his vehicle in Dale. His body was recovered several hours later.
