The search came to an end Tuesday morning at Lake Tawakoni after a father and son went missing Monday morning, CBS-affiliate CBSDFW reports.

According to officials, they are 25-year-old Corey Saunders and 5-year-old Nathan Saunders, of Quinlan.

Game wardens said the pair died in a boat-related accident.

The father and son departed from Caddo Landing in the area of FM 2101 around 5 a.m. Monday.

The dog showed up on shore before a search and rescue team was sent out. When crews got in the area, that dog would not stop barking and yapping.

According to officials, the 5-year-old boy's body was found in the shallow water near the Caddo Creek boat ramp late Monday night. He was not wearing a life jacket when he was found.

The man's body had not been found Tuesday morning, according to reports.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation, but authorities believe that the weather, the small size of the boat, and its load likely played a role.
