The Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) found two missing teenage Camden girls on Monday.

Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews said deputies received a tip Caroline Lynn Spigner and Savannah Joy Wilson, both 15, were staying at a West DeKalb Street motel in Camden. The girls fled to a nearby apartment complex when they saw deputies approaching, but were soon taken into custody.

Caroline’s mother said her daughter left her home around 6 p.m. Aug. 3, saying she was going to a movie at the Village at Sandhills in northeast Columbia, according to KCSO Investigator Steve Knafelc. Two days later, Savannah’s mother reported her daughter missing, saying Savannah claimed she was going to be spending the night with Caroline.

Knafelc reported the girls stayed at a trailer not far from KCSO headquarters on Thursday and Friday. He said a deputy reported being told the girls had been seen at or around Camden High School on Saturday.

Tuesday, Matthews said the case has been turned over to the S.C. Department of Juvenile Justice, but did not know what, if any, charges may come from the investigation.
