Several authorities were involved in the search for Bender because the authorities are processing possible crime sites in the Lumpkin, Dawson and Forsyth provinces.

An autopsy by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation will formally confirm Bender's cause of death.

Bender was reported missing for the first time on 19 September by her mother, who had not heard from her daughter for nine days.

Carol Gilreath, Bender & # 39; s mother, told it WSB TV: & # 39;My little girl never comes back. She's not coming back because she would never do that to her mother. & # 39;

Shortly after the authorities found Bender's bloody clothing in Dawson County, about 20 miles north.
