MONTGOMERY COUNTY, GA (WALB) - Searchers looking for a missing Coffee County man in the Oconee River thought they caught a break in their search Monday.

They thought a sonar image showed the body of 67-year-old Jimmy Porter, but it turned out to be a false alarm.

The former Douglas fire chief fell off a jet ski on the Oconee between Montgomery and Jeff Davis counties December 20th.

He was not wearing a life vest.
