ALBANY,  GA (WALB) – The 9th day in the search for 34-year-old John Slappey's body ended unsuccessfully Tuesday. Crews have now searched 25-miles south of the Jim Woodruff dam on the Appalachicola River.

Cadaver dogs alerted search teams on a scent Tuesday but all they found was another duck decoy.

The Chattahoochee, Florida police chief says Slappey's body is likely pinned underneath something in the water or near the dam. Volunteer groups will stand guard on the water all night with lights just in case the body floats up to the surface.

They say they'll resume again Wednesday and keep searching through Sunday. After that they'll likely back down on their search teams.
