BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- Action News has learned from law enforcement and friends of Amber Whited that the body found in Brunswick near highway 99 and Chris Road has been tentatively identified as that of the missing mother.

The 22-year-old mother had been missing since Tuesday afternoon, when she left for lunch. She was last seen getting in her car at the Harley-Davidson on Perry Lane Road in Brunswick. Whited's car was found Wednesday afternoon, in what family says is a dangerous downtown neighborhood, about nine miles from work.

Friends and family have been actively searching the Brunswick area for clues that may lead to Whited.

Glynn County police told Action News Friday, they were tracing her steps from the moment she left work, to where she may have gone for lunch. Several people have been questioned involving Whited's disappearance.

The body was found by two detectives as they left an interview with a relative of a person of interest in the case.  The detectives noticed flattened grass that looked like someone dragged a body into the woods.

The body will be sent to the Georgia Bureau of Investigations Crime Lab for an autopsy and positive identification.

A fundraiser has been set up at Larry's Subs on Highway 341 where Amber used to work.  On Thursday, 10-percent of all proceeds will go toward funeral arrangements.

There is no "reason to give" "why" things happen to our daughter, sons,sisters, bothers, fathers mothers..It"s the people who have no meaning for human live. How can the people that can cause the worst damage to the one's we love all we can do is pray for all of us and lead by what God would have us to do. There will be a judgment day!! God has carried our sweet Amber Home. Rest in Peace..Love and Prayers to the family.

So sad...PLEASE PEOPLE...get ARMED and trained. DO NOT trust anybody. KEEP YOUR gun close and ready. I am sick of murderers killing left and right and beautiful people and babies are being taken right under our noses. THANK your king Obama for the hatred and OPEN SEASON now on 'everyone', just like they have been doing to themselves for decades. And before ANYONE one of you say I am referring to this being a BLACK OR WHITE THING, I AM NOT..IT IS A 'THUG' THING. King THUG and his brainwashed followers.
