Authorities in Texas on Monday called off the search for a missing Minnesota man after a body was found in a lake connected to the Colorado River.

It's not yet been confirmed that the body is that of 25-year old Chris White of Minneapolis.

White went missing while attending a music festival in Austin, Texas.

He and a group of friends had rented a home on the Colorado River, and went to the Austin City Limits music festival on Friday night.

His girlfriend Olivia Wilson says they got back from the concert a little past midnight, early Saturday morning.

"They were all staying up drinking, and they were all sitting on a patio outside," she said. "Chris walked inside, they thought that he was going to bed, and he hasn't been seen since."

Several family members, including White's parents, were in Texas helping in the search.
