ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The search continues for a former Coffee County fire chief who disappeared on the Altamaha River Saturday.
67-year old Jimmy Porter fell off a jet ski on Altamaha River between Montgomery and Jeff Davis Counties. He wasn't wearing a life jacket.
The Montgomery County Sheriff says a witness saw Porter make a circle in the river with his Jet Ski. When he hit one of the waves that the turn created, it knocked him off of the Jet Ski.
Investigators used a helicopter and dogs in the search Monday. Tomorrow, the Sheriff hopes to put a dive team in the water.

Why are all these folks (a former Fire Chief for Christ Sakes) NOT wearing a life jacket???? It's not like Wallmart is running out of the $25.99 ones any time soon. You just can't fix STUPID.
