Woman who disappeared while jet skiing found dead

Missing woman's body pulled from Lake Allatoona

CHEROKEE COUNTY, Ga. -- Officials have confirmed with 11Alive that the body of the woman reported missing on Lake Allatoona has been found.

Crews were actively searching for Letrise Portia Ross, 49, Monday after she apparently disappeared while out on the lake.

Ross was reported missing on Sunday, Sept. 11 after her jet ski was found floating near a small island near Harbor Town Marina. 

She reportedly left the Webster Boat Ramp near Red Top Mountain around 10:00 a.m. and was expected to return around 1:00 p.m. But, her jet ski showed up around 5:00 p.m. At this time, fire officials assume Ross went out on the jet ski by herself. 

Officials are continuing their investigation, and have not determined what happened to cause her to become separated from the jet ski.
