AN EIGHT-year-old autistic girl has been found dead as her mom's partner is set to be charged with murder.
Gwinnett County police confirmed that a body they found on Tuesday is Nicole Amari Hall.
Nicole was last seen by her mom at the Hometown Studios Hotel in Peachtree Corners, Georgia.
Cops said that after doing an extensive search and talking to the girl's mom and partner, they realized they were not dealing with a missing person case.
"We conducted an extensive search and there was no sign of Amari," J. D. McClure with the Gwinnett County Police Department said.
"Additionally, we believed Amari at this point was not necessarily missing."
He added: “It’s extremely painful. It’s extremely painful. We all have family and we recognize the innocence of an 8-year-old child.
"Although we can’t bring her back, we can bring those responsible for her death to justice."
The little girl's body was found at 10.45am this morning in the area of Stone Mill Trace, near Stone Mountain Freeway.
Police ruled her death as a homicide, and investigators will be charging the child's mother's partner with murder.
Amari’s mother, Brittany Hall, will be charged with concealing the death of another.
