BAKER COUNTY, GA (WALB) - For the second night in a row, there is still no sign of a missing Thomasville man who disappeared Saturday on the Flint River.
Sheriff's Deputies, fire rescue crews, DNR officials, and divers along with volunteers have been canvassing the Flint River for 35-year old Brian Smith who was last seen snorkeling before his boat was found empty.
DNR officials took out a sonar unit to detect objects in the water and record information on a computer.
"This is better than what we've used in the past and we're excited to have the opportunity to use it," said DNR Official, Jim Atchley.
The airboat speeds off to a few miles north of Norman's Ferry Boat Landing where officials found Brian Smith's boat Saturday afternoon.
Smith's wallet and cell phone were inside his boat near the riverbanks. Friends say he also liked to snorkel but there's no telling what happened. This was Smith's first time on the Flint River. His friend Chuck Bird says he's an experienced outdoors man and never imagined divers would be searching for him.
"I'm very surprised," said Chuck Bird. "He's a smart man. It just doesn't seem like it would happen to him because he has an incredible amount of common sense. He was a pretty smart fellow too."
Friends of the Thomasville fisherman hope there's still a glimmer of hope he's out there. Rescue crews will resume Monday morning. Earlier Sunday, rescue crews canvassed the woods near the river and found no signs of Smith.
GSP also sent out a helicopter Saturday night to search for him. We'll continue to update you on any information involving the search.
