EXCLUSIVE REPRINT (NEW YORK) – Police have found the body of a 19-year-old Alabama boy who went missing Saturday after telling his mother by phone that someone was trying to kill him.

 

Jacob Hawkins confirms to PEOPLE that the remains of his brother, Nicholas Hawkins, were recovered Tuesday evening in Quinton, Alabama.

According to Jacob, investigators told the family Nicholas was murdered by a friend, 21-year-old Adam Reese. Police have yet to detail the exact charges that have been filed against Reese.

Police confirm that Reese was taken into custody Tuesday on an unrelated warrant. 

Hawkins was last heard from at around 8 p.m. on Saturday, when he called his mother and told her "someone is trying to kill me," according to the Dora Police Department. 

Hawkins allegedly told his mother that the person trying to kill him was Reese, Jacob tells PEOPLE.

According to Jacob, his brother's 2009 white Chrysler Sebring was found parked at Reece's residence in Dora, Alabama, on Sunday.

The search for Hawkins was expanded on Monday as police searched a wooded area near a hunting lodge in Dora.

Jacob says the police have yet to disclose how his brother died.

"We don't know anything yet," a sobbing Jacob explains. "He was such an amazing person. He played guitar and wrote music. He could sing. He was just a fun-loving, free spirit who was perfect in every way. He was kind, generous, humble. We're devastated."
