Twin boys reportedly disappear in Greene County river

GREENE COUNTY, MS (WLOX)-
Two six-year-old brothers are missing. They disappeared in the Chickasawhay River on Saturday when a sandbar reportedly collapsed.

A news release from the American Red Cross South Mississippi Chapter says that agency is providing on-scene canteen support for responders involved in a search and recovery of the two missing twins.

A phone call to the Greene County Sheriff's Department confirmed the search. However, the dispatcher said only the sheriff could release more information. And he hasn't returned phone calls to WLOX News.

A spokesperson from the nearby George County Sheriff's Department said the twins disappeared in the river on Saturday. Last night, family and friends held a prayer vigil for the boys. She said search teams have been scouring the Chickasawhay River since the drownings were reported.

Red Cross volunteers will remain on-scene to provide food and beverage for those involved in the recovery effort as long as services are needed. Greene County Emergency Manager Trent Robertson requested Red Cross canteen services to support the responders.

My prayers go out to this family and I hope they find their babies soon.

But am I the only person out there who is annoyed by the number of stories that include this "George County Sheriff's Department Spokesperson"??? I understand that the GREENE county sheriff probably has his hands full right now with not just this drowning, but other crimes, as well. It stands to reason that this woman so conveniently inserted herself into this story. Why else would WLOX just casually call GEORGE County Sheriff to get information on a Greene County situation? She seems to have a complex, loving to see her name in print. Whether it be in announcements of the latest arrest of a fellow who was jay walking or child support offenders. Come on folks, lets get real, and take away her phone.
