Goose Creek woman found safe in North Carolina
A Goose Creek woman who was missing for two weeks has been found in North Carolina.
Shannon Caruso, 29, was last seen leaving her house in the Colonial Heights subdivision around noon Aug. 17, her mother told Goose Creek police.
A message that Caruso had been found “safe and sound” was posted Sunday on a Facebook page set up to help find her.
Goose Creek police Sgt. William Ramirez confirmed Monday that Caruso had been located in North Carolina and was well. He could provide no details about how she got there.
Caruso’s disappearance set off a flurry of speculation on Facebook and Twitter, since it came at the same time authorities were looking for Dana Woods and June Guerry of St. Stephen. They were both found shot to death last week in Francis Marion National Forest.
Caruso’s mother told police she was worried that her daughter, who does not drive, might be in grave danger. She said her daughter was in a relationship with 31-year-old Kenon Roderick Stevens of Summerville, who had physically harmed her in the past.
The Summerville Police Department issued warrants for Stevens’ arrest after he kidnapped Caruso from Aug. 4-6 and threatened to kill her while he had a knife placed at her stomach, according to police records.
Ramirez said he didn’t know if Caruso was with anybody when she was found.
Caruso’s mother did not return a phone call Monday.
