Clayton County officers responded to a prostitution call in the 6300 block of Old Dixie Road on Friday.

Authorities spoke with Jonathan Reynolds, who reportedly told officers he had given a woman $40 to engage in sexual acts with him.

According to Clayton County Police, Reynolds said the woman then disappeared before performing the services.
