COCHRAN, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say the search for clues about a missing Middle Georgia State College student has led investigators to sift the charred remains of a Pulaski County fire site.

The Telegraph reports that the fire scene is not far from where the teenage suspect in the case lived. The 17-year-old has been charged with murder in the death of 19-year-old Jmaal Malik Keyes, a freshman from Austell.

WMAZ-TV reports that the fire site is a cabin that burned down around the time of Keyes' disappearance. A Georgia Bureau of Investigation official told the station that the evidence has been sent to a GBI crime lab.

Keyes was last seen on the school's Cochran campus April 25.

The 17-year-old suspect also took classes at the college as part of a dual-enrollment program.
