2 Months later, no trace of missing Watkinsville teen

By Joe Johnson

It has been two months since a Watkinsville teen went missing and authorities still have not found a trace of where 17-year-old Julia Mann might have gone.

“We have no new information on the disappearance of Julia Mann,” the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office posted on its Facebook page Monday morning.

“There has been no trace of her either physically or digitally since the night of 2/20 when she left her home seemingly alone and of her own free will,” the post said. “This case has been worked by the OCSO, the FBI, the GBI, and many other agencies, and we are continuing to work the case.”

Authorities have conducted ground, air, and K9 searches, spoke with neighbors and reviewed video from numerous sources.

The only physical evidence reportedly found was a single footprint outside the back door of the family’s home.

Mann went missing on the night of Feb. 20 in the area of Rocky Branch Road in the Rowan Oak Subdivision, just a few weeks after she and her family moved to the area, according to the sheriff's office.

There is a $20,000 reward for information on Mann’s whereabouts or leads to her safe return.

Mann has brownish, blonde hair, and is five feet, three inches tall and weighs about 100 pounds.

The sheriff’s office requests that anyone with information about this case to call them at (706) 769-3945 or contact Investigator Sanders at
