Horry County police have confirmed that they are now searching for a second Horry County woman, 24-year-old Jamie Lynn Cross of Myrtle Beach. The young woman was last seen driving away from her home and police are asking for the public's help in locating her, MyHorryNews.com reported Dec. 29.
Jamie Lynn Cross was last seen around 5 p.m. on Dec. 23, according to WMBF in Myrtle Beach, driving a green Volkswagen. She was later reported missing by her sister, Sarah Langlais, who found it unusual for Cross, the mother of two children, not to return at 10 p.m. that night, when she was expected.
According to the Facebook page, Find Jamie Cross, the young woman was not driving and the driver of the Volkswagen is unknown.
Langlais reported her sister missing on Christmas Day.
"I feel this must be taken seriously. This is not something common. She has disappeared and I am deeply concerned," Langlais told WMBF.
Jamie Lynn Cross is described by her sister as being 5' 11'', weighing about 240 pounds. She has blue eyes and neon pink hair and wears dark-rimmed glasses. She has a tattoo on her forearm with the name and birth date of her eldest son, Kevin Scott Campbell.
She was last seen wearing a pink/red shirt and black stretchy pants, according to MyHorryNews.com.
Lt. Robert Kegler of the Horry County Police Department (HCPD) said that the Major Crimes Unit would handle the case, just as it was the Heather Elvis investigation. Kegler also noted that the two cases appear to be unrelated.
Still, Cross' disappearance is the second time a young Horry County woman has been reported missing inside of a week, coming as it did just five days after Heather Elvis of Socastee was reported missing by her father after her car was found at Peachtree Landing in Socastee. The 20-year-old was last seen two days before in the Carolina Forest area, roughly ten miles from where her car was found abandoned.
Those having information on either young woman are asked to call the HCPD at 915-TIPS or email them at email@example.com.
