Fisherman Drowns In Wayne County Pond

The body of a fisherman, missing since last night, was found this morning in Wayne County.

Deputies say family members told them that Otha Pollard, Sr. went fishing around 2:00 p.m., but had not returned home around dark. They went to the pond near the Wilson County line where they found the man's boat and fishing gear in the water, but no sign of the 66-year-old man.

The dive team and Fremont Fire Department members searched Sunday night by boat and they returned Monday morning where Pollard's body was found around 10:00 a.m.
