LCSD: Missing Gaston teen found safe in Fairfield County
Man accused in her disappearance arrested
GASTON, S.C. (WIS) - A missing 15-year-old girl from Gaston has been found safe, according to the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department.
Lilith Donelle Currier was found in Fairfield County, according to authorities.
Lilith left her grandfather’s house on Friday, June 26, her family said.
She was picked up by 39-year-old Korraye Ford, according to Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon.
“We’re not sure where they went from there or how long they were together,” the sheriff said.
Deputies found Ford and arrested him Wednesday, July 1, charging him with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. They claim he convinced her to leave her family’s house and meet him.
However, Currier was not with Ford when he was arrested.
“He says he doesn’t know where she is,” Koon said. “He’s refused to share any information about Lilith with us.”
Officials said her family is on the way to pick her up.
