LEESBURG, Ga. (AP) - Authorities are working to identify a body found on a hunting plantation in southwest Georgia.

WALB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Pw3gMz ) an employee of Chokee Plantation in Lee County discovered the body Tuesday morning in a holding pond. The pond is located near the home of an 88-year-old woman missing since Christmas Eve.

Lee County officials say Florida Mae Price, who suffers from dementia, hasn’t been seen since she wandered away from home Thursday.
