MONTGOMERY COUNTY, GA (WALB) - What was once a multi-agency search for a missing Coffee County man has been scaled down drastically.

The Department of Natural Resources is the only agency still actively looking for 67-year-old Jimmy Porter in the Oconee River.

The former city of Douglas fire chief disappeared on the river somewhere between Montgomery and Jeff Davis Counties on December 20th.

A witness told authorities Porter fell of his jet ski on the river. Porter was not wearing a life jacket.
