According to Sheriff Clark Millsap, 30 year old “Seth” Morgan was reported missing after leaving work at the Zep Manufacturing plant in Emerson on May 24, 2018. His family and friends reported that he had not been seen since that day. On May 31, 2018, the Bartow County Sheriff’s Office joined the Emerson Police Department and the Georgia Bureau of Investigations in the case as new information was obtained. Investigators discovered that he had taken a taxi to a local restaurant and then to a friend’s home after leaving work on the 24th. He then left on foot from that home.
The investigators organized several searches of areas and did not locate any evidence of foul play. On Saturday August 25th just after 11:00AM, workers cleaning up brush at 251 McCormick Road near Euharlee found human remains and called 911. After recovery, the remains were confirmed to be Seth Morgan by the G.B.I. Medical Examiner’s Office. Investigators are awaiting testing and examination results to determine a cause of death, but at this time no foul play is suspected.
