Body of missing man found

October 28, 2005

Bainbridge, Georgia-- Friends and family are mourning the loss of a father who went missing in Bainbridge.

The body of 29 year old Ricky Davis was found early Friday morning in the Flint River. He apparently drowned while fishing Monday afternoon. Three deputies searching the river saw his body floating about two miles from the Earl May Boat Basin on the Flint River.

Divers were unable to locate his body earlier because of murky conditions. "The conditions were about ten foot visibility. There was a lot of marine growth, all kinds of trees and stumps," says Thomasville Police Diver, James Coker.

Davis' wife thinks he had been checking trout lines.
