There may be a break in a nine-year-old missing person's case here in the Wiregrass.

At this time the FBI is being extremely tight-lipped in regard to what, if anything was found in a two-acre sinkhole near Ponce De Leon.

In fact over the next several days the FBI divers will scour every inch of the sinkhole located on private property which is near the Holmes-Walton County line off Highway 90.

Recently, Opp police received a credible tip indicating that Kemberly's body was here. The 17-year-old Opp High School student was last seen at her father's Opp home in August, 1997.

Cadaver dogs from as far away as Baltimore, Maryland have been brought in to try and detect a scent. And an FBI spokesman at their mobile office tells the media that they'll try and release any information as soon as possible.
