Missing Putnam County woman’s body found in Lake Oconee.

Sources tell 11Alive that two fishermen discovered the body near a dam at Lake Oconee on Friday afternoon.

“While we were riding towards the place I was going to go fishing, I noticed something that looked strange — out of the ordinary — so we approached it,” said fisherman Dennis Higgs. “When we got close enough to see what it might be — we thought it might be a buoy or something like that — when we got closer to it, we realized it was more than a buoy. It was something else, so we backed off from it. I think at 2:24, I called 9-1-1.”

Sheriff’s officials confirmed that the body found was Shirley Dermond’s.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office at 706-485-8557.
