Julia Mann, the 17-year-old girl who has been missing since Feb. 20, has been located in a state that’s not
contiguous to Georgia, Sheriff Scott Berry told The Oconee Enterprise Tuesday, June 30.
Berry declined to elaborate on which state Mann was found in. In a public statement, he said Mann appears to be safe and that the Sheriff’s Office will not release any further information at this time.
“Please respect her privacy and be respectful to a teenage girl and her family,” Berry said in the statement. “Thank you for your concern and your assistance in finding Julia.”
Berry told The Enterprise that the Sheriff’s Office has spoken to Mann via telephone and that all the investigators who worked on the case are thrilled that she’s been found safe. He said the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office will continue to work with other law-enforcement agencies as necessary.
