Body found in Jesup, may be missing man


A body was found floating in a Jesup pond Friday, and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is trying to determine whether it's the body of Jeffrey Bailey.

Bailey, a 28-year-old Jesup resident, has been missing since Sept. 20. He was last seen near the Jesup Walmart, not far from where the body was found in a fenced pond off First Street.

Wayne County Deputy Coroner Edward Mathis says there's no way to figure out who the dead man is without an autopsy because the body is too decayed.

That autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.
