DEKALB COUNTY, Ala. – Friends are raising money after authorities discovered a missing girl dead in DeKalb County this weekend.

The Cedartown High School Class of 2009 has set up a GoFundMe in memory of Amberly Barnett.

Amberly Barnett was last seen at her aunt’s house on County Rd 822 in Collinsville at around 6 p.m.  Friday. Barnett was reported missing and later found dead Saturday morning. Law enforcement did not disclose where she was found. They were reluctant to share more details during a Saturday press conference.
