Friends and family of the young woman missing since a boat crash on Smith Lake are still hoping for the best but realistic as the search for Kelsey Starling enters its fourth full day.
The 26-year-old Starling, a Troy native and speech language pathologist at Tuggle Elementary School in Birmingham, disappeared on the Fourth of July following a 10 p.m. crash in the lake’s Rock Creek area.
Starling was a passenger in a 2012 Mastercraft wakeboard boat driven by 23-year-old William Jackson Fite of Decatur. Fite was booked into the Winston County Jail early Friday on a charge of boating under the influence.
