Police investigating a missing person case in Baldwin County discovered a body in Elbert County on Wednesday, April 24, 2024. The Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office had sought assistance from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) in locating 24-year-old Dawson Brandon Lee, who had been missing for several days from Milledgeville, GA. Lee’s vehicle records showed he had traveled to Elbert County on April 17.

Following a search involving multiple agencies and four GBI regional investigative offices, authorities located a man’s body around 12:00 p.m. near Lee’s abandoned vehicle in Elbert County. While initial indications suggest the body may be that of Dawson Brandon Lee, a GBI medical examiner will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of death and positively identify the deceased.

Preliminary findings from the investigation suggest no evidence of foul play.
