George County Sheriff Dean Howell is asking for the public’s help in locating Donovan Cowart, who has been missing since January.
Cowart was last seen on Jan. 12, but he was not reported missing by family until March 18.
He is 26 years old, about 5’7″ and between 175-185 pounds with light brown hair and blue eyes.
Investigators with the sheriff’s office say every tip is being followed up on, and the search has extended into Greene County and Alabama. The FBI Safe Streets Task Force is assisting the sheriff’s office.
Investigators say that no piece of information is too small to report, as it helps to piece together a puzzle of the disappearance when combined with information already in hand.
“We are doing everything we can to locate this young man,” Howell said. “We want to bring him home to his family.”
Howell asks the public to contact the sheriff’s office or Crime Stoppers with any information regarding the disappearance.
Crime Stoppers can be reached at 877-787-5898. The George County Sheriff’s Office can be reached at 601-947-4811 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. and 601-947-9156 after 5 p.m. and on weekends.
