Dive team searches for possible body part

LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

UPDATE:

A dive team will head back to a Lee County Creek on Sunday to continue their search for a possible human arm.

An area near the Kinchafoonee Creek was blocked off earlier this evening, while the Lee County Fire Department dive team searched for the possible arm. 

Authorities say a group of swimmers picked up what they believed to be a human arm, got scared and dropped it.
