The body of a female was found in Banks County today but foul play is not suspected, according to Sheriff Charles Chapman.
Chapman said a call came in to the Banks County 911 center around 10 a.m. of a body being found on Sample Scales Road at Sample Bottom Road.
A report was filed on March 18 of a missing person who lived on Sample Bottom Road, Chapman said.
The missing person was identified as Iva Marie Ford, 52. Ford was last seen on March 15.
Chapman said the Georgia Bureau of Investigations had already been involved assisting Banks County with the case.
“Today when the body was found, the GBI Crime Scene Unit was called to the scene by our office,” Chapman said. “The preliminary investigation indicates this was the body of the missing person.”
The body has been sent to the crime lab in Atlanta and this case is under active investigation, he added.
“Right now, no foul play is suspected,” Chapman said.
