CLINCH CO., GA (WALB) -

Officials started a search for Jacob 'Jake' Dewitt Conner, 30, of Fargo, six weeks ago. He has not been seen since he was missed at his job site Wednesday, February 1.

GBI Special Agent Mark Pro of the Douglas post said that there is now a $10,000 reward for information that leads to his location.
