Bainbridge, Georgia-- Authorities in Decatur County are searching the Flint River for fisherman, Frederick "Ricky" Davis.

"My husband's been missing since, last time somebody saw him was Monday night," says Clara Davis.

The next morning, Davis went looking for her husband herself. When evening fell, she called the sheriff's office for help. "They've got dive teams out now. Yesterday they ran a copter a couple of times. I'm assuming he went to check trout lines just up the river from the boat ramp. It's just outside our house," says Davis.

Davis says it's not uncommon for her husband to check the nets at night. He has dark brown hair, blue eyes, and stands about five feet, eight inches tall. "He was wearing a black and blue striped T-shirt, a pair of jeans, and a pair of slip-on leather suede shoes," says Davis.

Authorities found Davis' aluminum John Boat overturned about three quarters of a mile upriver from the Earle May Boat Basin. But that doesn't mean he didn't make it. "I feel like he's sitting on the side somewhere waiting. He's a hard head, and he's going to survive," says Davis. Those are strong hopes for a man who has a lot to live for, especially his three year old daughter.

Davis is on track to graduate from Bainbridge College in about six months with a degree in computers. If you think you've seen him, call the Decatur County Sheriff's Office at 248-3044.
