The McLennan County Sherriff’s Office is sending out a helicopter to aid in the search. The Waco Fire Department made rescue boats available and the Waco Police Department is using a drone in the search.
Gonzales has black hair, brown eyes and was last seen wearing a gray Mickey Mouse shirt, grey mickey Mouse pants, and black and white Nike shoes.
