According to Sheriff Clark Millsap, on Monday, October 5, 2020, at approximately 11:45 p.m. the Bartow County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a missing adult, Brittany McCoy, who was supposed to be babysitting a 10-month-old juvenile in Bartow County. The Bartow County Sheriff’s Office immediately initiated a search for McCoy and the child.
Once circumstances warranted an Amber Alert, the alert was issued statewide and McCoy, along with the juvenile, were located shortly thereafter in Rockdale County.
The parents of the juvenile were notified that the child was located in good health and are on their way to be reunited with their child.
McCoy is now in the custody of the Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office on unrelated charges. Bartow County Investigators are charging McCoy with Theft by Taking (motor vehicle), Kidnapping, Reckless Conduct/Endangerment, and Interference with Child Custody.
