ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Orangeburg County Deputies want the public's help in finding a missing woman. 

Hattie Edwards, 86, hasn't been seen since Thursday just before noon at a truck stop on Highway 301. 

Edwards is described as 5-foot-2 inches tall and weighing around 150 pounds. She was driving a tan Kia Forte.

“If anyone has any information on Mrs. Edwards’ location, please call us or your local law enforcement agency immediately,” Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said. "We want to bring this lady home as soon as possible.”

Edwards was reported missing by family members around 8 p.m. Thursday, according to Ravenell. She left her home on Surrey Race Road around 10 a.m. to help her son, who had run out of gas on Highway 21 in Colleton County, deputies said. 

She had not been seen by family members or her stranded son by 6 p.m. A motorist at the truck stop said he loaned Edwards his phone when Edwards seemed distressed, according to Ravenell. Edwards explained to the motorist she was trying to find her son and had gotten lost. 

She hasn't been seen since. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact the nearest law enforcement agency or the OCSO at 803-534-3550.
