A man who went missing in Sanford along with his girlfriend was found dead Saturday night at Lake Jesup Park — about eight miles from where his car was found abandoned, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said.
After a two-day search, Trodarius Rainey, 26, was found in a wooded area of the park, the agency said on its social media accounts. The search continues for 35-year-old Tiffany Nicole Church.
The couple were last seen Wednesday night in a black 2021 Toyota Camry, which was found abandoned at a property on the 1900 block of Cameron Avenue in Sanford.
The Sheriff’s Office said at the time evidence found in the car made Rainey and Church’s disappearance suspicious. Deputies are investigating Rainey’s death as a homicide, the agency said.
Anyone with information can contact the Sheriff’s Office at 407-665-6650 or Crimeline at 1-800-423-8477.
