Body of missing teen found inside car in small pond

Authorities found the body of a missing Georgia teen on Wednesday, who vanished on July 12 after telling family members she was on her way to see a friend.

Athens Banner-Herald reports that Julie Ann Mosier, 18, disappeared after visiting a relative in Danielsville on July 12, on her way to visit a friend near Bowman. Authorities later found her car at the intersection of Parhamtown Road and Georgia Highway 172.

On Thursday, Danielsville Police Chief Brenan Baird said an Elbert County sheriff’s deputy discovered her car after locating tire tracks on a dirt embankment close to the intersection. The car was crashed into a small pond.

“He got out and found a set of tire tracks that literally drove into a small pond,” Baird said. “Essentially, it looks like she did not see the stop sign at Parhamtown Road.”

Mosier, a recent high school graduate at Elbert County Comprehensive High School, had just gotten her driver’s license. Authorities think she may missed a stop sign and subsequently crashed into the pond after losing control while going down an embankment.

“It’s a rough time for the family, but they do have some resolution,” Baird added.

The Georgia State Patrol continue to investigate the crash. Check back with CrimeOnline as additional details become available.
