The family of Tyasia Jones, the girl who drowned Saturday in Lake Wildwood, has no insurance to help cover the costs of the funeral, according to the Bibb County school system.

Jones attended Jones Elementary School in Macon.

Stephanie Hartley, Bibb County school spokeswoman, said anyone wishing to send donations to help cover funeral costs are asked to send them to Jones Brothers Mortuary, 3035 Millerfield Road, Macon, GA 31217.
