UPDATE……………………….several facebookers have contacted us with information on the subject of this post. He is described as a person who legitimately travels around selling diapers, cleaning supplies, etc. This might explain his approaching and inviting the young ladies to come around to the back of his van. I will reach out to speak to him myself but from what I can gather he is not a threat to anyone. Just a traveling salesman with some great deals on diapers, toilet tissue, washing powder, and such. Mystery solved, thanks for the reports and thanks for the feedback. Sheriff Chris Steverson

Please be on the lookout for a B/M, 5’08” to 5’10” in height, last seen this date in Milan Ga wearing a black coat and a black beanie style cap with a bill.
Person was reported as behaving suspiciously, and allegedly approached a young female attempting to engage her in a discussion which made here fearful of his intent. To our knowledge he has not committed any crimes.

However, due to the nature of the complaint we would like to identify and speak to the gentleman to better understand his intentions as they relate to the individual reporting suspicious behaviour.

The person of interest was last seen driving a White van, no tag, large single door on passengers side and large single door on rear. He left Flash Foods traveling west on Hwy 280 (towards Rhine)

Relay any information to me personally at 912 381 5591 or Investigator Ron Bowdoin @ 229 315 4323, thank you all for helping us keep Telfair County safe!
