The body of a 30-year-old Bartow County man missing since May has been discovered.
Bartow County Sheriff's Office officials confirmed that the remains of Freddy Seth Morgan, of Taylorsville, were found Aug. 25 at 251 McCormick Road near Euharlee.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation Medical Examiner's Office positively identified the remains to be Morgan. At this time, a cause of death has not been determined, but foul play is not suspected. 
Friends and family reported Morgan missing on May 24. The GBI, the BCSO and the Emerson Police Department began a joint investigation to find the missing Zep manufacturing employee on May 31. 
According to investigators, Morgan took a taxi to a fast food restaurant on West Avenue a little before 1 p.m. on the date he went missing. According to investigators, he then took the same taxi to visit a cousin's home in Cartersville. 
From there, it is believed Morgan left that residence on foot — the last time anyone saw him alive. 
Bartow County Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. Jonathan Rogers said there are no signs that Morgan was the victim of a homicide. Nor did he say there were any distinguishing injuries on the body, suggesting that Morgan may have been struck by a vehicle.
Rogers said there are no suspects in the case and that both toxicology and autopsy reports are pending. 
It remains unknown the time and date Morgan died. 
"That's something we may never know," Rogers said.
