A man out fishing with his wife and two children drowned Monday night in Wayne County.
Deputies say Michael Gardner of Rocky Mount went to Buscoe Beach, that's south of Goldsboro. They say when the 44-year-old man started walking into the water he went under and never resurfaced.
A search for the man was immediately begun that went through the night. Just after 11:00 a.m. Tuesday Gardner's body was recovered.
