ORANGEBURG, S.C. (WIS) - The Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help to locate a missing five-year-old.

Watch WIS News 10 at 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Officials said around noon on Thanksgiving Day, deputies were sent to a residence on the 200 block of Louise Drive to conduct a welfare check.

Deputies say they found a deceased woman at the location. The victim’s cousin said she had not heard from the victim since Nov. 7.

Investigating deputies learned the deceased woman has a child named Aspen Jeter who was not located at home.

The cousin notified authorities of the child’s father living at the residence because his lights were turned off at his home.

Officials say the mother and Aspen’s father did not get along.

OCSO is asking anyone with information on the child’s location or the deceased woman to contact the OCSO at 803-534-3550 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIMESC.
