HCPD: Case "cold" in search for missing Waffle House waitress

Posted: Updated:

AYNOR, SC (WMBF) - Family and friends of a missing Aynor woman continue to hold out hope after over a year of searching concludes with few results.

Horry County Police were first informed of Susan DeLuca's disappearance back in April of 2010 after family members became concerned from a lack of phone contact. It wasn't until nearly two months later, on June 21st, that police discovered DeLuca's car submerged in the Little Pee Dee River.

"Somebody knows, somebody must have seen something," said Rachel Larrimore, a friend and former housemate of the missing woman.

Inside the car there, there was no sign of DeLuca but investigators were able to match license plate numbers. DeLuca was known to use the car as investigators admitted she had planned on going to visit family members in Maryland before she went missing.

Initial reports showed DeLuca may have last been seen at the Sparky's Fireworks on US-501.

"You know somebody for so long you know how they are, you know something's happened to them." said Dena Sandwick, a friend of Ms. DeLuca, back in June of 2010.

Through police reports, WMBF News learned that Ms. DeLuca quit her job at the Waffle House in Aynor just before she disappeared. On Tuesday, none of her former colleagues would speak on the record about the investigation.

Investigators are asking for anyone with any information to come forward. You can reach Horry County Police at 843-915-5350.
