A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the location of a 30-year-old man who has been missing since Feb. 1 from a logging site near Fargo.


Jacob “Jake” Dewitt Conner was last seen late Feb. 1 around Score Bridge Road and Plumb Bush Road where he was working with a crew from the family logging business, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said in a prepared statement. His coworkers, who last saw him about 4 p.m., reported him missing.

The area is between U.S. 441 and the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge north of Fargo and features heavily forested wetlands.

Law enforcement agencies and family and friends began looking for Conner on the day he disappeared.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said the Clinch County Sheriff’s Office, local emergency workers, the GBI, the Georgia State Patrol and Department of Natural Resources are conducting an additional search of the area where he was last seen.

At the request of Sheriff Raymond Peterson, the GBI became the lead investigative agency Feb. 2.

Conner is about 6 feet tall, weighs about 250 pounds and was last seen in a dark gray Conner Timber shirt and uniform work pants, the GBI said.

Anyone with information on Conner or his whereabouts is asked to call the Clinch County Sheriff’s Office at (912) 487-5316 or (912) 487-3250 or the GBI’s Douglas office at (912) 389-4103.
