April 14--  The body of a man was found floating in a pond near Santa Claus Thursday morning.

Toombs County Sheriff Junior Kight said he spotted the body in the middle of the pond when he went to check his onion field which is next to the 12-acre pond.  His sister, Joyce McNair, owns the pond.

Sheriff Kight says the man is 56-year-old John Lee Hunt and that he lived in a trailer near the pond at 196 Simpson Road.  According to the sheriff, Hunt was last seen going to fish at the pond Saturday and was reported missing by his family Monday.

The GBI is investigating the circumstances of the death and the body is being sent to the state crime lab, the sheriff says.  He reported no signs of foul play.
