FANNIN COUNTY, Tex. -- The search is off for a possible body in Lake Crockett.

Fannin County authorities called in the Collin County dive team early Friday morning after a fisherman's claimed to have hooked a finger with the arm still attached on his rod but lost it Thursday afternoon.

The divers, along with a dragging boat, found nothing except a soggy sneaker.

The sheriff’s department must take every call seriously, but according to the department there have been no reports of anyone missing or a drowning in the area.

"We don't have any reason to believe based on the individuals who have searched the area and the individuals who've drug the area that there's a body here," said Fannin County Sheriff Kenneth Moore.

Police have now reopened the area to the public on the far end of the lake.

Davy Crockett Lake is located 10 miles north of Honey Grove in Fannin County.

    this county is so corrupt anyway. No one seems to remember Jennifer Harris Holman do they...the sherriff's department knows who killed her...but every case in Fannin County becomes a "cold case".

    Knowing the reputation for Fannin County and the number of crimes committed and ignored by the law, I think this should be checked out further. Lake Crockett is near the area where the Sash Church of God preacher was murdered in front of his congregation just last year.

    This is stupid. A finger yeah right.. thats like me saying i found a toe in my chille. Haha. but this is stupid. i mean come one.. if you get the finger than it will take awhile for you to get the body up. and how do they know it was a finger did they see it.. if so they could have gotten a net and got the body. so there is noo proff that they saw a body. Unless they have pictures of course. Maby just the 30 seconds of fame.

    I used to go parking at that lake when I went to high school in Honey Grove.

    I can hear it now. Barney Fife says, "how many fingers were on the arm". Come on, said they were questioning them as to what they saw. They saw an arm. The article is poorly written and lacks info such as,,,, did the fisherman keep the arm or throw it back because it was too small or he didn't want to clean it??

    Sounds kinda like someone may be trying to point the police in the direction of a body...maybe someone knows something about a crime and they're afraid to just point blank say it? Dig deeper than just the surface...that's where all the details are.

    Who's writing this stories these days? If I reeled in a human arm, why would I mention and why would I just say that I caught a finger attached to an arm? This makes no sense whatsoever.
