BETHLEHEM, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say the body of a missing ride-hailing driver has been found under the house of a Georgia man who has been taken into custody.

Barrow County Sheriff Jud Smith said deputies got a tip about the possible location of Kim Mason. She had been missing from Gwinnett County since Sunday.

After getting a search warrant, the sheriff says deputies found a body buried in the crawlspace under a house near Bethlehem on Tuesday.

The body has been identified as Mason. Deputies arrested Adam Heard, who lived at the house.

Among charges against Heard are concealing a death and theft of a motor vehicle.

It’s unclear if Heard has a lawyer.
