SANDERSVILLE, Ga. (AP) — The body of a Georgia elementary teacher, who was reported missing this week, is believed to have been found in Washington County.

The sheriff’s office, at a news conference Friday, said they found what they believe are the remains of Tina Prince, 46, off a rural road near Sandersville, news outlets reported.

Prince, a first-grade teacher, was reported missing after her daughter told police she received several suspicious phone calls while at dinner with family, before she abruptly left the restaurant and never returned.

Prince’s car was discovered abandoned in a Walmart parking lot.
