Prayer vigil held for woman missing for nearly one month

RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) - A prayer vigil was held Wednesday night for a Richland County grandmother who has been missing for nearly one month.

Charlene Fulton, 52, was last seen Nov. 23 at her apartment on Bent Tree lane. Fulton's family says her lack of contact with them is out of character for her.

Her family says its very unlike Charlene to disappear like she did, and they are worried about her because she suffers from a medical condition.

They say Fulton suffers from serious medical conditions, including diabetes and sleep apnea and they are concerned for her safety.

"That's not like her, for one thing," said friend Jean Watkins. "She always had medicine and snacks in her purse or in her little lunch bag that she kept in her car or whatever, you know. It's just, it's wild."

Family members, however, do not suspect foul play.

They tell WIS that Fulton was funny, caring, and a hard worker who had worked at Rush's, the Department of Mental Health, and as a correction officer at the Department of Juvenile Justice.

Fulton drives a silver 2014 Kia Rio 4 door sedan with South Carolina tag KJV617.She is described as a black female, 5' 5" tall, 196 pounds, with brown eyes, and black hair. A photo is attached to this story.

If you find Fulton or know anything about her whereabouts, call 911.
