Jefferson County Sheriff James Bailey said Fayette Police have been working in conjunction with JCSO and surrounding agencies to find Snyder, who was reported missing by his girlfriend on Sept. 6. When they last spoke, Snyder was on his way to Natchez in a gray Dodge Challenger with license plate number 1984.

She told police that all his calls were going to voicemail and that none of his friends or family members had seen or heard from him.

Snyder received fatal injuries from the crash, which is still under investigation by the Mississippi Highway Patrol.
