    GA - Jeremy Thomas, 22, Macon, 16 Feb 2007

    A team of nearly 50 people searching Tobesofkee Creek this afternoon recovered items belonging to a missing 22-year-old Macon man.

    Rescuers retrieved some personal items from an abandoned boat about 700 yards from Ga. 247, said Lt. George Meadows, Bibb County sheriff's spokesman.

    Family members confirmed the items belonged to Jeremy Thomas, Meadows said.

    Thomas was reported missing at 2:20 p.m. Sunday after he was last seen Saturday at about 3:30 p.m.

    It doesn't sound like the boat tipped over if his belongings were found inside the boat. I wonder if he was reaching for something and flipped out of the boat? If there is junk in the water he may have gotten trapped under something and because of the cold was unable to get un-tangled. That is all I can come up with.

    Doesn't sound like there was any reason that he would want to just disappear. Hopfully he will be found and is still alive. His poor parents and girlfriend.

    More info

    From http://www.someoneismissing.net/index.php/Jeremy_Thomas

    Jeremy Thomas was last seen when he left on a fishing trip on the evening of February 15th 2007 on Tobesofkee creek in Macon Georgia. He had a friend with him.

    He spoke with his fiancÚ on Friday the 16th at 8:00am. He said they were about to put the boat back in the water. This was the last time anybody other than the friend spoke with him.

    The friend returned on Saturday evening. He told the family several different stories, but told the police that he was cold tired and wanted to come home. He said Jeremy chose to stay longer.

    The little John boat they had was found on Sunday evening with most of Jeremy's belongings inside of it.

    The friend said that the chip to the cell phone had fallen in the water. The area is a swampy area.

    It was searched by both police and family and friends. Nothing else has been found to date.

    The friend says that he came out at the intersection of Hwy 247, Pionono Avenue, Broadway and Houston Avenue between three and five o'clock on Saturday February 17th with wet clothes.

    His girlfriend just happened to ride by and picked him up. He says that Jeremy chose to stay in the creek.

    ETA: If this "friend's" story doesn't sound "fishy," I don't know what does!

    Officials Monday night called off the search along Tobesofkee Creek for 22-year-old Jeremy Thomas, who's been missing since Sunday.

    and

    They said foul play is not suspected.

    and

    According to EMA Director Johnny Wingers, Thomas requested to stay fishing alone Saturday after his friend wanted to come home early.

    Wingers said it took a while to sort out all the facts surrounding Thomas and his boat.

    JOHNNY WINGERS: EMA DIRECTOR
    "There was some confusion about how he came back to the edge and then went back out to the boat, and turned up missing.

    Yeah, this sounds real suspicious. I have family in the area and there are tons of water spots off the rivers and lakes that people often get "lost" in. I hope the story running will bring in tips. If something was foul play, maybe they have talked since 2007.

    I agree, sounds suspicious.

    Two days after Jeremy left for the trip, Ryan Borders -- the one who went with him -- showed up -- without Jeremy.

    "What kind of friend leaves a friend and just walks off and leaves him in a creek and doesn't tell anybody," Brooks and her mother both wondered.

    Bibb County sheriff's investigators had the same question.

    "His story was that one he fell out of the boat and two he got snake bit. You don't see many snakes in the woods or in the water during that time of year," retired Captain Jimmy Barbee said.

    Soon, that story changed.
