COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A Colleton County woman who had been missing since Saturday afternoon was located in a Berkeley County homeless shelter.

Deputies said 19-year-old Audrenna Attanasio, from Green Pond, was dropped off at the Lil' Owl Care Assistance for the Homeless facility in Berkeley County after being picked up by one of the facility's drivers who spotted Attanasio and thought she may need food or shelter.

Attanasio's family says she has poor vision and mild autism.

When officials at the shelter saw Attanasio's photo on a local news broadcast, they called deputies.

Attanasio was believed to be with her dog, a black Labrador/Chow mix. The update from the sheriff's office did not state whether the dog was with the girl.
