Team will search lake near Dermonds' home

Putnam County's sheriff says investigators will use underwater technology to search Lake Oconee today near the home of Russell and Shirley Dermond.

Russell Dermond, age 88, was found murdered one week ago today. His wife, who is 87, has been missing since then.

Sheriff Howard Sills says they'll use Department of Natural Resources underwater technology to search the cove near the Dermond's home. He said it would be impossible to search the entire lake.

Russell Dermond was found decapitated and his head has not been found. Investigators are also looking for Shirley Dermond. Billboards across the state are asking people who may have seen her to call the Putnam County Sheriff's Office at (706) 485-8557.
