Police: Searchers find body of 24-year-old reported missing after wreck

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. — Searchers have found the body of a 24-year-old who hasn't been seen since he wrecked his pickup truck earlier this month.

According to Suwanee police, Alec Christopher Davis wrecked his car May 4 around 5:15 p.m. in the Village Grove subdivision.

Police said he crashed his truck into a mailbox and into another car in the road. He then walked off from the scene.

Police told Channel 2 Gwinnett County Bureau Chief Tony Thomas they found the body in a lake near the crash site. Thomas was on the ground with the search crews Monday.


The 24-year-old's phone had been turned off, police said, and there had been no activity on his bank accounts.

Davis' mother, Amy Durham, told Channel 2 Action News that she simply wants to know what happened.

"Our focus is to just find him and finding out what happened. If he ran, why did he run? There are so many questions that we don't have answers to," Durham said.

Durham's family spent the afternoon breaking the news to Davis' four younger siblings and their extended family.

"Every possible scenario has gone through our heads, whether we like it or not. Every day brings a new emotion," Durham said.

Police are trying to figure out exactly why Davis ran from the scene and what happened in the following hours or days that led to his death.
