A missing 10-year-old girl has been found and is safe and unharmed.
Authorities located the girl in a wooded area near Boulder Bluff Elementary School, according to reports.
Today at approximately 9:11 a.m. the Goose Creek Police Department was notified that a student was missing from Boulder. The child is Zoey Reynolds, a white female, 10 years of age, shoulder length brown hair, wearing a purple leopard print hoodie and jeans, according to GCPD.
GCPD and several assisting agencies were in the area attempting to locate the child. Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office bloodhounds were attempting to track her route as of 12:30 p.m. while the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office helicopter orbits above.
It has been confirmed via surveillance video that she departed the school campus alone on foot, according to GCPD.
A reverse 911 service called A Child Is Missing has sent out an alert to phone subscribers in a three-mile radius of the school.
“This morning, a Boulder Bluff Elementary student left class voluntarily and exited the campus,” Berkeley County School District PIO Susan Haire said. “The child’s parents and the authorities were called immediately. Law enforcement and district personnel are currently on campus as a full investigation and search are currently underway. The school has sent a phone notification message to all parents.”
