ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP) -- Investigators are searching for evidence in the death of Glynn County Commissioner Tom Sublett.

Georgia Bureau of Investigation Special Agent in Charge Michael McDaniel said Tuesday that divers are searching the Frederica River.

Sublett's body was found Dec. 11 in the river near St. Simons Island after he failed to return home from an evening poker game with friends. An autopsy determined Sublett was shot in his head before drowning, but the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has not determined whether his death is a homicide.

McDaniel says investigators are exploring all options and continuing to interview people.

The Glynn County Police Department is offering $25,000 for information.
