The car of a missing college student was found in Georgia this week in an unsolved case. The college student’s car has been missing for more than 40 years, and they also found skeletal mains inside, authorities did say.
In a statement by the Troup County Sheriff’s Office, the car of Kyle Clinkscales was found in Chambers County, Alabama, on Tuesday.
They also recovered a wallet with identification and credit cards along with skeletal remains, police said at a news conference.
22-year-old Clinkscales was last seen on January 27, 1976, after leaving a bar in western Georgia to drive back to Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama.
Chambers County deputies were notified of a submerged vehicle in a creek, the Troup County Sheriff’s Office said. They notified Troup County Sheriff’s Office after pulling the car from the water and identifying the Georgia license plates.
The license plates matched the 1974 Ford Pinto Runabout that Clinkscales was last seen driving, the Troup County Sheriff’s Office said.
The car “is currently being processed by special agents with the GBII to determine the content of the vehicle,” the Troup County Sheriff’s office said.
