According to Sheriff Bobby J. Guidroz, “A body recovered yesterday in Bayou Courtableu has been identified as Clifford Broussard, 67 of Bossier City.” According to reports, Mr. Broussard was at his camp off of Hwy 103 in Washington to repair damages from a recent burglary. His family last heard from him via text on August 29, 2020, at approximately 7 pm. A family member arrived at his camp on Sunday due to Broussard no longer answering the phone. Broussard was reported missing and St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue team was called to search for Broussard. Search efforts continued Sunday, Monday and again Tuesday morning. A power line worker and a female caller observed a body in the Courtableau Bayou near Bada's Bar on Tuesday at approximately 2:21 pm. The St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue team arrived at the boat launch and recovered the body of Mr. Broussard. Sheriff Guidroz then notified the family.

No foul play is expected and the investigation continues. An autopsy is being conducted.
