Gabrielle Swainson’s father, Alvin Thompson, believes she is no longer alive. The 15-year-old went missing in South Carolina in August. She was home alone while her mother was at work. However, when her mother returned, Gabrielle was not in the house.
On Tuesday, the suspect in her kidnapping was “convicted on weapons charges.” That was when Thompson told reporters he no longer thought his daughter was alive, according to WLTX.
"I don't think she's alive," he explained. "There's been too much time."
Thompson went on to say that Freddie Grant is the person who can lead authorities to Gabrielle.
This suspect was accused of transporting Gabrielle from her Columbia home on August 18, said the Huffington Post.
Authorities also believe Grant is to blame for the disappearance of Adrianna Laster. This 28-year-old lived with him but has now been missing since the fall of 2011.
Grant was “convicted of illegally possessing ammunition” because his criminal record forbids him from “owning ammo.”
In the past, Grant was convicted for “intent to distribute cocaine, aggravated assault and kidnapping.”
The Columbia State explained that Grant could get life in prison.
