JEKYLL ISLAND, Ga. (WSAV) — After over 20 hours of searching, the body of an autistic teen was found on Jekyll Island Tuesday afternoon.
The Jekyll Island Fire Department and Georgia State Patrol were searching for a teen who disappeared from a summer camp Monday.
Connor Mathis, 16, was last seen at Camp Jekyll on May 29. He is described as 5 feet 6 inches, 140 pounds with short hair and braces. He was possibly wearing black shorts with a red T-shirt.
Residents in the surrounding areas were asked to check around their homes for the teen. Police said Mathis was high-functioning autistic and “is most likely scared.”
The cause of the teen’s death is still under investigation.
This is a developing story.
