Woman's Body Found in White County Lake

JANUARY 19, 2007 - Posted at 7:45 a.m. CST

 

McRAE, Ark. (AP) - Searchers have recovered the body of a 45-year-old McRae woman who hadn't been seen since Sunday night.

Deborah Cornett's car was found in Lake Barnett on Wednesday, prompting White County authorities to search the lake. By Thursday, the lake level had gone down and sheriff's Captain Woody Jones says Cornett's body was found on the bank.

Authorities say high water from heavy rains over the weekend may have contributed to the accident. McRae Police Chief Ann Cook says Cornett may have taken a wrong turn down a boat ramp. About 30 yards away was the turn to go over a levee to a bridge.
