Family of missing SC woman says her body found

Spartanburg, SC - SPARTANBURG, SC (AP) — Investigators say a body found in a wooded area is likely that of a South Carolina woman missing since Saturday.

Officials would not confirm that the body found was that of 21-year-old Rebecca Rosa. Her family members told multiple media outlets that they found her body in a wooded area in Spartanburg County.

The mother of three was last seen Saturday.

Sheriff Chuck Wright said deputies are searching for Rosa's ex-boyfriend Robert Lee Jr. in connection with her disappearance and death.

Rosa's sister Rachel Rosa told WYFF-TV that her sister had recently moved to a new apartment from a safe house where she had stayed after leaving an abusive relationship.
