July 11, 2019
More than 20 firefighters, police officers, sheriff's deputies and a game warden spent hours Saturday night and early Sunday morning searching for a woman reported missing on Big Escambia Creek near Flomaton and eventually found the woman unharmed sitting on a sandbar just north of Turtle Point Environmental Center.
Flomaton police were first contacted about 9:45 p.m. Saturday that a woman was missing on the creek.
Capt. Chance Thompson said a group had launched at Magnolia Branch earlier that day with plans to end at the Skippy White South Bridge on Highway 31 near Hardee's.
