Posted: Updated:

The body of a missing fisherman who went missing near a popular Catawba County dam on Tuesday has been found, Catawba County Sheriff Coy Reid says.

Rescue teams were out searching near Lookout Shoals Dam after a 30-year-old man went missing on Tuesday night.

Family members say Zoua Chang, 30, was fishing with a friend near the dam and was last seen around 6 p.m.

"We really hope they can find him or find something," said Leng Chang, Zoua's brother. "He was fishing then he just disappeared."

Chang's brother told WBTV that Zoua Chang has a history of health problems, including seizures.

"He has seizures when it is hot outside. He gets no energy and has seizures and I guess that is what happened," Leng Chang said.
