ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - The Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office is looking for a 26-year-old man from Orangeburg after finding his car in Elloree the morning after he was reported missing.

Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said Sanjeev Verma, of Orangeburg, was reported missing by his wife just after 10 p.m. Monday. Verma's wife told deputies she last spoke to Verma around 6:45 p.m., when he told her he was heading to speak with a local magistrate.

Ravenell said investigators have since determined Verma never made contact with that magistrate.

"At this point, we cannot rule out anything. Sanjeev is a husband and father. We want to be able to locate him and ease the minds of his family members that he is safe," said Ravenell.

The victim's vehicle, a gray 2007 Nissan Sentra, was located Tuesday morning on Cleveland Street in Elloree.

Verma stands 5'4" and weighs about 170 pounds. He was last seen wearing a brown and white jacket, a white and black Aeropostale jacket, light blue jeans, and white sneakers.

Anyone with information about the disappearance of Sanjeev Verma is asked to contact authorities at 803-534-3550 or CrimeStoppers at 888-CRIME-SC.
