KERSHAW COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

A 7-year-old boy reported missing from Kershaw County two weeks ago has been located in New Hampshire.

Kershaw County Sheriff's Capt. Steve Knafelc says Charles Hughes Chandler was found with his family Wednesday night. Chandler was last seen on November 20th.

Investigators suspected his parents were driving a vehicle with Vermont registration.

Knafelc said Chandler's grandmother picked him up Wednesday night. Family Court and the state child services agency in New Hampshire is investigating the case.

"The grandmother indicated to me last night that she will get a medical exam done and seek temporary custody in her state," Knafelc said via email.

Since leaving Kershaw County, Knafelc said Chandler was not enrolled in school. He said when his grandmother picked him up, the boy had "some minor injuries and bed bugs over his body."

Chandler's grandfather lives in Lugoff and reported the child missing.
