ELLABELL, Ga. (WSAV) – Authorities have found the remains of a Bryan County woman reported missing on July 8.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) says, however, that a friend who reported 44-year-old Renee Reagan missing had not heard from her since Oct. 21, 2019.

Reagan’s last known address was on Homestead Drive in Ellabell.

In mid-July, the GBI was requested by the Bryan County Sheriff’s Office to assist with the missing person case. Just days later on July 20, a body was found off of Hwy 80 in Effingham and sent to the GBI’s Crime Lab.

Two days later on July 22, the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office (ECSO) arrested Spencer Robbins, 49, for concealing the death of another and tampering with evidence.

The GBI announced Monday that as a result of forensic testing, the remains have been identified as Reagan’s. Further details on her death have not been released.

ECSO is leading the death investigation.
