Dive Team Searches Local River


Authorities are searching a local river for a suspect.

The Leon County Sheriff's Office dive team is combing the Ochlockonee River west of Tallahassee. They're looking for a man wanted in a purse snatching at the Riverfront Saloon on Saturday.

Deputies say the victim pointed out 18-year-old Becari Warren of Quincy, saying he had stolen her purse.

Warren fled the scene in a car and was finally cornered by deputies, but he ran to the boat ramp and disappeared.

Relatives say he hasn't been seen since. A search of the area by land, water and air has turned up no sign of him.
