According to one Facebook poster who said he was in contact with the family, Hodge was found about five hours away from Atlanta.
The news Hodge had been found came after the community came together via the Facebook page, which by Sunday evening had more than 1,000 followers, and through the Twitter hashtag #FindDavisHodge to plan searches, post fliers and pray. Hundreds of fliers were posted throughout Johns Creek and Georgia.
