Moncks Corner Police say a teen reported as missing on Monday has now been found in Alabama. 16-year-old Morgan Garrison was found safe, a spokesman said.
On Monday morning, officers responded to a possible missing person at a home on Jolly Street. Morgan’s grandparents told police that she was last seen on Sept. 30 around 2 or 3 a.m. Police say they believe that Garrison may have tried to take a bus to Alabama. Lt. Michael Roach told local TV station WCSC that Garrison has extended family in Alabama and she placed a phone call Friday asking them to come get her.
The grandmother said she last saw Morgan sleeping in her bedroom. Police say when the grandmother got up to wake Morgan for school the following day, she noticed the bedroom window was opened and her granddaughter was missing.
The grandparents also told police they believe she might have stolen more than $2,100 worth of jewelry from the home.
