AL - Jeffery Todd Palmer, 43, Neel, Nov 2007
A rescue effort shifted to a recovery effort Tuesday as searchers dragged the Tennessee River for some sign of a man missing since Friday.
Jeffery Todd Palmer, 43, of Neel apparently told a friend by cell phone Friday afternoon that he had found a nice arrowhead and was preparing to return home from his arrowhead-hunting expedition on the river, rescue workers said.
Lt. Danny Kelso of the Morgan County Rescue Squad said three days of searching have made rescuers doubtful they will find Palmer alive.
"The chances of him being still on the river and on an island this long without communicating with anyone aren't good," Kelso said.
Searchers found Palmer's kayak, jacket and truck keys in a slough behind the General Electric plant Sunday.
