ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Divers joined the search for a missing Lee County woman Monday afternoon.

77-year-old Fannie Corley has been missing since Thursday.

Cadaver dogs pinpointed a location on Lake Chehaw where a body could be located.

Divers tried to search the bottom, but the current was too swift.

"We have some divers that were trying to get in the water with enough weight to get them down there because now the current is a big factor and without the weight to get them down it can become a problem," said Sheriff Reggie D. Rachals, Lee County.

Authorities believe Corley may have jumped into the lake.

Her car was found on the Jefferson Street bridge over Lake Chehaw the day she was reported missing.

Tuesday morning, Search teams will reassess and decide how to go forward with the search.
