AZLE (CBSDFW.COM) – A month-long search for a missing Reno man has ended.

The Tarrant Regional Water District Police Department was searching Eagle Mountain Lake Marina Wednesday afternoon when officers with sonar equipment located a submerged vehicle with a body inside.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner confirmed the body found is that of Jim Bob Cook, 56.

Cook was last seen in Azle on February 8, 2017.

Cook went to an Azle Italian food restaurant two weeks ago.

Family members say he ate, had a few beers during karaoke night and left around 10:30 p.m. on February 8.

“With this sad information, Azle Police Department will close Mr. Cook’s missing person case.  We offer our deepest condolences to the family of Mr. Cook on the loss of their loved one,” said Azle Police Chief Rick Pippins.  “We will continue to support the family in any way we can and of course offer our assistance to the TRWD Police Department as they continue the investigation into the death of Mr. Cook.”
