The body found at the Riverwalk Marina in Augusta on Saturday has been positively identified as 27-year-old Brandon Mathis, the man reported missing last week.
Brandon Mathis was last seen at 8 a.m. Thursday leaving his residence on the 3600 block of Langdon Drive, authorities said. Brandon Mathis left the residence walking, and his cell phone had been turned off.
A Thursday post by Mathis’ cousin said his disappearance was unusual since he did’t leave home much.
Mathis’ body will be sent to the GBI crime lab for identification and a determination of cause of death. The sheriff’s office is investigating.
