After a six-month-long search into the disappearance of Susana Morales, Gwinnett County Medical Examiners identified the body of the young girl last week. The family of Morales reported her missing on July 26th. The teen was reportedly in contact with her mother the night she went missing. According to detectives, Morales texted her mother at 9:40 p.m. telling her she was on the way to their residence on Windscape Village Lane in Norcross, however, she never made it home. Detectives say, her phone was shut off at around 10:26 p.m. that night.

The Gwinnett County Medical Examiners determined that the DNA matched Morales’ dental records.

Bryant, who had worked for the Doraville Police Department, was placed in Gwinnett Detention Center without bond. He is expected to make his first court appearance Tuesday morning, reports note.
