Terrel Moore

CHARLTON COUNTY, Ga. -

Deputies in Charlton County say a 51-year-old man who was missing since last week was found dead in a wooded area near his home. 

Terrel Moore  was last seen since about 5 p.m. Jan. 5 at his home in Folkston.

Deputies said he had missed required medications.

“At this time, we believe Mr. Moore, who had not been taking his medications, walked away from his home and became disoriented and was overcome by the elements," said Sheriff Conner.

Moore's remains were sent to the Medical Examiner’s office in Savannah, Georgia and the sheriff's office is awaiting the official cause of death.
