Bobby Weaver search in Covington, GA 2015, with Newton County Sheriffs Office and CUE Missing persons. During a search byWGMSAR and the Newton County Sheriff’s Office (NCSO) for missing person Robert (Bobby Weaver, III), human remains were found Saturday.
At approximately 1:30 p.m. search teams located human remains about a mile from where Weaver was last sighted, according to Morrison.
The Floyd County Sheriff’s Volunteer Posse helped find the body of a Newton County man missing since 2013.
Sheriff Tim Burkhalter announced Monday that the remains of Robert "Bobby" Weaver III were found Sunday after an exhaustive search through dense vegetation and tough terrain.
Weaver was 27 when he disappeared on the night of Sept. 5, 2013, while walking his dog in the area of Ga. 142 and Stone Road in Covington. Details posted by the Center for Missing Persons state that Weaver had a medical condition that may have caused him to have a staggered walk.
The Center and the Newton County Sheriff’s Office asked for assistance from a four-wheeler team on Saturday and Sunday. FCSO posse members Marcia Ely, Dale Hulsey, John Mull, Amy Rice, Marshall Rice and Mike Williams responded with their own vehicles and equipment.
The Floyd County volunteers, trained in search and rescue, worked with Kelly Walker with the Center, Sgt. Cortney Morrison of the Newton County Sheriff’s Office and West Georgia Mounted Search and Rescue to find Weaver’s remains.
