Search Resumes For Bodies Of Bowdon Woman And Niece Feared Drowned

A Bowdon woman and her niece are feared drowned at Lake Wedowee in eastern Alabama Friday.
According to Tammy Andrews of ClayClountyWeb.com, a 6 yr old female was walking on the rocks near one of the buoys and lost her balance, falling into the water around 7:00 pm Friday night. Her 28 yr old Aunt was the first to jump into the water to save her niece. Neither of them resurfaced.
Clay County Rescue Squad and Cragford Fire Department was paged out to the scene, along with Randolph County Personnel. Boats were launched and divers searched for hours before the mission was suspended around midnight. The search will resume at 7:00 am Saturday morning. Flat Rock Park will be closed to the public all day Saturday.

The names of the females will not be released at this time.
