UPDATE: Byron Grogan has returned home:
Hundreds of volunteers and local authorities are currently searching for a 19-year-old Lambert graduate that was reported missing last night.
Byron Grogan was reported missing by his family early Tuesday morning after he went out for a run at Chattahoochee Pointe Park in south Forsyth at 9 p.m. Monday but never returned, according to a press release from the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.
According to Cpl. Doug Rainwater, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office, Grogan’s car was found at the park at about 1 a.m. Tuesday. In the hours since searchers have scoured the park and surrounding area with no other sign of Grogan.
“There are a lot of possibilities, but at this point, we have checked every single trail,” Rainwater said. “We are just searching now the best we can.”
Rainwater said they have deployed over 100 volunteer searchers; 35 law enforcement officers from various agencies, including the U.S. Park Service as well as fire departments from Forsyth County, Johns Creek and Gwinnett County; boats from the Department of Natural Resources; and a Georgia State Patrol helicopter.
Grogan was a former member of Lambert High School’s boys cross country team, finishing second on the team in 2016 as a senior when the Longhorns won the Georgia High School Association Class 7A state championship.
Grogan is described as being 6-feet, 175 pounds with brown hair. The release states that he was last seen wearing a yellow t-shirt, red shorts and running shoes.
Rainwater said that Grogan had no previous history of running away and was in perfect health.
He said anyone with any information on Grogan should call their main dispatch number at (770) 781-3087.
