Prince’s daughter, Kenzie Price, said her mother received a call while they were eating at Pueblo’s Restaurant in Sandersville around 8 p.m. on May 28, FOX 5 reported.


She left to answer it and then disappeared. Her daughter did not know who was on the other end of the line, according to FOX 5.

The discovery came hours after investigators shared new photos of Prince taken from a security camera at a gas station on May 28, according to FOX 5.

Aaron Matthew Adams, 31, was taken into custody late last week and charged with felony concealing a death and two felony counts of giving false statements.

During a press conference, Cochran said more charges are pending the outcome of the investigation.

The Sheriff said Adams was the “male acquaintance” that police discussed during their investigation. Authorities said they couldn't go into any details regarding the investigation because it is active and ongoing.

"This has been a very long and tiresome week for the Prince Family and the entire Washington County Community," the sheriff said during a press conference. "Please continue to pray for the family of Tina Prince and her Washington County school family."
