Search intensifies for missing 6-year-old in South Carolina: ‘I’m going crazy not knowing’ – National News

Evgen_Prozhyrko/iStock(CAYCE, S.C.) — The family of a missing 6-year-old South Carolina girl is desperate to find her after she mysteriously disappeared in front of her own home.

First grader Faye Swetlik was last seen around 3:45 p.m. Monday. She had gotten off the school bus and was playing in front of her home in Cayce, just outside of Columbia, according to the Cayce Department of Public Safety.

“I’m going crazy not knowing where she is,” Faye’s grandmother, Ruth Collins, wrote on Facebook.

“Faye is a bubbly and happy little girl,” her family said in a statement. “She’s not the type of kid that will up and walk away… Faye pays attention to her surroundings.”

“We just want to find Faye and bring her home,” the family said.

Multiple agencies are involved in the “ongoing, large-scale missing person investigation,” the Cayce Department of Public Safety said Wednesday morning.

Investigators who spent Tuesday going door-to-door in the area are back knocking on doors Wednesday morning, reported ABC Columbia affiliate WOLO.

“We’re not leaving any stone unturned,” Sgt. Evan Antley of the Cayce Public Safety Department said Tuesday.

Community members gathered to pray for the little girl at Trinity Baptist Church Tuesday night.

“I want my baby back,” Faye’s grandmother said at the church, according to WOLO. “You got to find her.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the Faye Swetlik hotline at 803-205-4444.
