Kinchafoonee arm possibly identified
Wed, 28 Aug 2013 13:00:00 GMT —
Lee County officials have a lead on where an arm spotted in the Kinchafoonee Creek came from.
Authorities say there's a possibility the arm spotted belongs to a CPR mannequin.
Lee County Fire Chief James Howell and Lee County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Lewis Harris both say a spectator on the creek confirmed that he saw a mannequin up in a tree.
Officials say there is a chance that the arm seen floating in the creek belonged to that mannequin.
Lee County Fire officials will not resume a search for the arm Monday morning.
Chief Howell says since the arm was floating atop the water, this means it is moving with the current. He says the arm could be miles away by now.
Without any further evidence that the arm belonged to a human being, fire crews cannot expend time continuing a search.
Lee County Sheriff's deputies say they have confirmed that there are not any missing people in Lee County or Dougherty County.
