Authorities call off search at Lake Crockett

By  | 

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.
