— A fishing trip has ended in tragedy for a Wake County family.

Officials said 38-year-old Tyrone Taylor of Richardson Road in Zebulon and his 8-year-old nephew, Justin Harris of Hazelnut Road in Raleigh went fishing yesterday afternoon.

Taylor's wife reported them missing when they didn't return home.

Wake County Sheriff's deputies found the pair just off Morphus Bridge Road in the Little River, about 11 a.m.

The two had been fishing off the bank. Deputies don't know if either victim knew how to swim.
