A body, believed to be of Atlanta-based rapper Edward Reeves, who was reported missing almost two weeks ago, is reported to have been found over the weekend in rural Macon Country area of Alabama. Reeves' cousin Kendrick Stokes' body was also found.

According to reports, the first body – believed to be of the rapper, also known as Bambino Gold – was discovered in a wooded area on Friday by a passer-by, who alerted a friend who in turn informed the local authorities.

Following this, an investigation was launched, which led to the discovery of another body – about three to four miles away from the first one – on Saturday. The second body has been identified as rapper's cousin, Stokes, 30.

"They were not far off of the road at all,'' Macon County Sheriff Andre Brunson told Al.com. "It looks like somebody placed them there. I don't think they were killed there."

"My heart goes out to the families and we're working hard to get to the bottom of this," the sheriff added.

The two men – Reeves, 29, and Stokes, also known as Skooly Kee Da Tooly – were last seen on 5 November, driving a 2016 white Honda CRV in Montgomery, Alabama.

Two days later, both the men – who are longtime friends as well as cousins by marriage – were reported missing.

While Stokes was in town (on Saturday, 4 November) to promote a party at the local Sky Bar, his cousin, Reeves arrived in Montgomery the following day. The two were headed to the Alabama National Fair on 5 November, and that's the last anyone heard of them.

The Macon County Sheriff's Office along with the Montgomery Police Department and the State Bureau of Investigation are working on the case, said the sheriff.
