Missing Hall County teen girl back home safe

Anthony Bernard Powers

A 15-year-old Hall County girl is home safe after she was found Thursday in Cuthbert in southwestern Georgia.

Hailey Grimsley had been reported missing June 30.

A 29-year-old Cuthbert man, Anthony Bernard Powers, has been charged with interference with child custody.

Sheriff’s investigators worked with Grimsley’s mother and followed leads, which led to the identity of Powers.

Hall County and Athens-Clarke County officers took Powers into custody Wednesday in Athens.

She was believed to be with Powers when the “lookout” was posted June 30. She was reported last seen in Hall County at a home on Morgan Drive.

The Hall County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division continues to investigate the case.
