A 23-year-old student of Forth Valley State University, Anitra Gunn, has been reported dead.
Anitra, according to reports, went missing on Valentine’s Day 2020, after her family couldn’t get in touch with her.
A complaint was made to the police by her family, and after, news about her disappearance went viral on social media.
The family told the police that it was alarmed after it did not hear from Anitra after an “unusual amount of time”.
The search for Anitra Gunn by the Georgia police began on 15th February and escalated by including a dedicated task force by Monday. They also offered a $5,000 reward for anyone with the information.
Finally, Crawford County investigators found the 23 years old Anitra Gunn dead exactly a week after she went missing on February 14, 2020.
According to Peach County Sheriff, Terry Deese, a part of Anitra Gunn’s car was found near her body which was found around 3:20 pm.
Her body was recovered by a task force that had taken to the ground because the weather was too poor for an aerial search, and authorities said her body was partially covered.
Christopher Gunn, Anitra’s father, said the last time he had spoken to his daughter was on Friday morning to wish her a happy Valentine’s Day, 11Alive reported but her friends and family members didn’t hear from Anitra throughout the day even after they had reached out to her.
Investigators have questioned Gunn’s boyfriend and towed his car. “In cases like this, we are not going to leave any rocks uncovered,” Deese said, WMAZ reports.
