On Wednesday, a day after her body was found, her father Christopher Gunn posted a message to Facebook sharing his own heartbreak.

"We are processing the devastating news and kindly ask for respect and privacy during this time as we wrap our hearts and minds around all of this," he said.

Her school, Fort Valley State University, said the community was "intensely saddened" by the tragedy.

Police said Anitra Gunn - a 2016 graduate of Westlake High School in Atlanta and a senior agriculture major at Fort Valley State University - was last seen on Feb. 14 at around 11:30 a.m. She spoke to her father that day and he said he wished her a Happy Valentine's Day.

Just after 3 p.m., her body was found about 150 yards off Greer Road in a wooded area, Peach County Sheriff Terry W. Deese said in a press conference. He added that her body was partially covered, as if "someone tried to hide it."

A man believed to have been her boyfriend, DeMarcus Little, has been arrested on a separate matter. He has been named a person of interest.

Her father said that information regarding services and where donations can be made will be announced at a later date.
