Waycross -- A major development in the case of the missing son of a former state Senator. Investigators found a body in rural Ware County today. GBI agents are waiting on autopsy results to confirm whether it's Van Streat, Junior.
Ten o'clock Thursday morning, the body of a white man was found in these waters in Waycross.
"It was some information that a deputy had recieved from Ware County Sheriff's office," GBI agent Jeff Evans said.
An anonymous tip related to a case Agent Evans has been working on for three weeks now. The case of missing 27-year-old Nicholls man Van Streat, Jr., son of a former Georgia Senator.
"We've interviewed over 400 entries have been made so there's a tremendous amount of effort that has been contributed," Evans said.
Search efforts in Ware County found Streat's truck partially submerged in this water last month. The body was pulled from the water about 300 yards from where the truck was found.
"Right now there's no evidence that suggest any type of foul play, that we have come across yet. But that can change in five minutes or an hour," Evans explained.
Bacon County Sherriff Richard Foskey is a friend of Streat's family and has helped the family throughout the entire investigation.
"Naturally they are upset, but at least now if the positive identification comes back as Little Van Streat the family has some closure," Foskey said.
Closure that may come from a crime lab in Savannah.
"Until we get a positive identification from the crime lab, we're not saying positively it is Mr. Streat," said Waycross Police Chief Tony Tanner.
Five law enforcement agencies, a family, and a community. Working together to find one missing man.
"At this point we're just sitting back waiting for results from the atopsy," Rick Currie the District Attorney said.
A community with many questions, now waiting for an answer.
Preliminary autopsy results may be availible Friday. Streat's family did not want to talk about the discovery tonight, but a relative did say they believe the body found today is Little Van Streat.
