By Jim Simpson – Efforts to find a man who had been missing for nine days ended tragically this afternoon.

According to Suwanee police, on May 4 around 5:15 p.m., Alec Christopher Davis wrecked his car in the Village Grove subdivision. Police said he crashed his truck into a mailbox and into another car in the road. He then walked away from the scene.

“Our deputies located a body we believe to be Alec,” said Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Shannon Volkodav, “within two hours of their search and we had to share the heartbreaking news with his parents that he was deceased. There is no indication of foul play.”

The 24-year-old’s phone had been turned off since the accident, police said, and there has been no activity on his bank accounts.

Suwanee Police Department investigators had been trying to locate Davis since his disappearance but had no leads. They reached out to the Sheriff’s Office whose Rapid Response Team deputies began a search this morning in the heavily wooded area near where Davis was last seen. His parents were on scene early this morning hoping to help provide answers by eliminating the possibility that he was in the area.
