COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - August will mark a full year since anyone has seen or heard from 15-year-old Gabbiee Swainson, the Ridge View High School teen who disappeared from her Tamara Way home.
In an effort to keep the missing girl fresh in the public's minds, the Swainson family has released a new flier that's expected to be circulated around the Midlands in Valpak coupon ads in the next few weeks.
The flier will be sent to areas in Charlotte, Myrtle Beach, Miami, Greenville, and parts of Columbia.
Investigators believe Swainson was kidnapped from her home during the early morning hours of August 18.
Deputies believe the prime suspect in this case, Freddie Grant, had a key to the Swainson home and took Gabbiee against her will.
Investigators also found DNA evidence days later indicating that Gabbiee had been in Grant's Elgin home.
Grant is charged with kidnapping and is now serving time in a federal prison on a weapons charge connected to this case.
