WALHALLA, SC (FOX Carolina) – Oconee County deputies said they are searching for a Walhalla woman who has not been seen since February 4.
Deputies said they are searching for Faith Roach.
Roach is 5’5” tall with strawberry blonde hair, weighs 110 pounds, and has blue eyes.
Deputies said Roach has not logged on to social media for multiple days and her phone has been turned off, something her family has confirmed.
“We haven’t heard from her. Her phone’s been off and no social media, which is really strange for her because she stays in contact no matter what the situation is," said cousin Deanna Clark. "She stays in contact with someone and nobody’s heard anything.”
According to the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office incident report, Roach’s family was concerned she may be being held somewhere against her will.
“We’ve been told quite a few things but that’s what it all comes back to," said Clark. "That’s something we’re leaving up to the police to investigate and find out, but there’s plenty of reasons to believe that.”
“Things just don’t add up. It can’t be a good situation.”
Roach's family grows increasingly worried, especially because her 5-year-old Connor is growing increasingly scared. Pamela Marcengill, Roach's aunt, says the pain of missing her is unbearable.
“Last night when they were out searching, Connor came up to me and asked me, 'did they find my mamas body? Is my mama dead?' No five year old should have to deal with this," she said. “It’s time somebody step up and tell us where she’s at. Give us some information. We just need something to go by cause we’re running out of time. We’re running out of hope. We got to get something. Please somebody just tell us something.”
Deputies ask anyone with any information that could lead them to Roach to call the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office at 864-638-4111 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
