In late July, 2015 Godwin was reported missing to the Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office.  According to the missing person report Mr. Godwin was last seen when he was picked up at his residence in Muscadine.

Mr. Godwin is described as a white male, 5’6”, 165 lbs. Brown hair, blue eyes.  He was last seen wearing Army green cargo pants, Army green t-shirt, and a camouflage Alabama ball cap.

Since the time of the report investigators from both the Haralson County Sheriff’s Office and the Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office have followed up on numerous leads in both counties and spoke with a number of persons in Georgia and Alabama who had current or previous connections with Steven Michael Godwin.

“Yet despite our running down every possible lead none of the hundreds of hours of investigative leg work has yielded a substantial lead.”, Mixon said.

Both agencies are currently receiving and sharing new information that they gather in hopes of learning more about where Mr. Godwin may have gone after leaving his residence in Muscadine.

The Cleburne County Alabama Sheriff’s Office and Haralson County Sheriff’s Office have joined together to request that anyone with any information on Mr. Godwin, contact either agency and any and all information will be kept anonymous and strictly confidential.

You may contact Haralson County Sheriff’s Office at 770-646-2011 or Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office at 256-463-2277.
