ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Law enforcers are asking South Georgia kayakers to help them search for a missing Lee County woman.

77-year old Fannie Corley disappeared Christmas Eve.

Her car was found on the North Jefferson Street bridge, and police and her family believe she jumped into the water.

Now that Georgia Power has lowered the level of Lake Chehaw and the Kinchafoonee Creek, Officials plan another search next Thursday.

Dougherty County Police Captain Jimmy Sexton said  "There is a lot of the area we can search that we weren't able, accessible to with the creek up."

Officials are asking for volunteers to help them search.

If you own a kayak and life preservers and would like to help, call Dougherty County Police at 430-6600.
