Kristi Cornwell Remains Identified In Northern Georgia

Posted: Updated:

The remains of Kristi Cornwell, a woman missing since 2009, have been identified in Georgia, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) announced today.

Cornwell was identified through dental records, GBI spokesman John Bankhead said Monday.

The killer has not yet been identified and there have been few leads. Cornwell had been missing since Aug. 2009.

The bones were found this past weekend not far from where she went missing in Northern Georgia, CBS News reports.

A website dedicated to finding Kristi Cornwell, www.kristicornwell.com, has been down today, likely due to a surge in traffic.

A Google cache of that site shows that these details were provided:

Kristi was last heard from at approximately 9:00 pm on August 11, 2009 while walking on Jones Creek Road near Blairsville, Georgia. She was last seen wearing a white tee shirt and tan shorts. Authorities from the Union County S.O., the GBI, GSP, DNR, Dept. of Corrections and additional officers from neighboring sheriff's departments joined an extensive search for 6 days of the Jones Creek Road area. At this time authorities believe that Kristi Cornwell was abducted by vehicle while walking on Jones Creek Road, and is believed to be in extreme danger. The community is being asked to contact the Union County Sheriff's Office or the GBI if they have any information concerning Kristi's disappearance. Also, authorities are seeking information from anyone who was in the vicinity of Jones Creek Road between 8:00 and 10:00 pm on Tuesday, August 11, 2009.
