Search teams called off for missing child

Dougherty County Emergency Management Director Ron Rowe announced that the search for a missing two-year-old child has been called off during a Friday afternoon press conference.

It will now be a missing person case and will be handled by the Dougherty County Police Department.

The child went missing Sunday at Piney Wood Estates during severe weather that tore through Southwest Georgia.

Search teams cleared an area over 150 yards wide and drained a nearby pond while searching for the child.
