Authorities are releasing new information on one of two brothers who went missing off South Padre Island.
Investigators have confirmed the body of 18-year-old Jose Jesus Bolado washed ashore around 8 a.m. Friday morning.
Coast Guard Lt. Roxanne Jensen said their helicopters spotted Bolado's body was found 200 yards south of the entrance to the Boca Chica Beach.

On Wednesday, the family members were enjoying the beach when the two brothers and their 22-year-old cousin Ivan Roberto Bolado all disappeared.
Ivan Bolado's wife and a Good Samaritan pulled him from the South Padre Island jetties Wednesday night, hours after the three had disappeared.
Paramedics airlifted Ivan Bolado to the Valley Baptist Medical Center in Harlingen where he was pronounced dead.
Authorities have been searching for Jose Jesus and Daniel Bolado since Wednesday night.
The search continues to find Daniel Bolado.
