NORTH GEORGIA---Investigators continue to search in the north Georgia mountains where the body of a hiker was found last night. They're also looking at a possible link to the disappearance of a North Carolina couple in October.
Meredith Emerson's body was found after the suspect, Gary Hilton, led GBI agents to the spot. He's a drifter and is now being held without bond.
Police say Hilton was seen talking to Emerson near a hiking trail on January 1.
