After searching the Thunderbolt Marina for 13 days for missing Swainsboro beautician Cindy Lynch, law enforcement officers and marine divers discovered a body at the bottom of the Wilmington River around 7:30pm last night. It was the body of a blonde woman dressed all in black, around 30 feet from Lynch's yacht, where she was last seen.

Authorities have not confirmed that it is the body of Cindy Lynch. It has been taken to the medical examiner's office for identification.

Lynch's family has been notified. We talked with Lynch's daughter last night and she says the family will be at the marina today waiting for an answer.
