Body of Missing Bulloch County Man Found in Ogeechee River

In a tragic turn of events, the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed that the body discovered by rangers from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources is that of Jeffrey Haymons, a 59-year-old man from Bulloch County who had been missing since February 2.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, rangers made the grim discovery in the Ogeechee River near Williams Landing on Thursday morning. This comes after Haymons’ white 2000 Ford Expedition was found abandoned at the same location on Saturday, February 3. The landing is situated in northern Bulloch County, specifically off Old River Road North and Macedonia Road.

Upon further investigation, authorities were able to positively identify the body as that of Jeffrey Haymons.

The search for Haymons had been underway since he first went missing, with law enforcement agencies conducting extensive searches by water, land, and air in the area surrounding Williams Landing. Despite their efforts, the outcome was not what they had hoped for.

In order to determine the cause of Haymons’ death, his body will be taken to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation lab in Savannah for an autopsy. This process will provide crucial information to aid in the ongoing investigation.

Sheriff Noel Brown expressed his gratitude towards the various agencies involved in the search, including the DNR, Bulloch County Public Safety, Bulloch County EMS, and the Burke County Dive Team. He specifically highlighted the exceptional efforts of the dive team, who conducted an underwater search under challenging and hazardous conditions.

Authorities are urging anyone with information related to this incident to come forward and contact the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Criminal Investigation Division at (912) 764-1744 or Investigator Pre Cone at (912) 764-1703. Any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, could prove vital in piecing together the events leading up to Haymons’ tragic demise.

As the investigation continues, the community mourns the loss of Jeffrey Haymons and hopes for answers that will bring closure to his loved ones.
