Missing Boulder Bluff Elementary student safely located

GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) -

Authorities say a 10-year-old Boulder Bluff Elementary student who was reported missing from the school Wednesday morning has been located.

Goose Creek police say a female student was reported missing from Boulder Bluff Elementary School at approximately 9:11 a.m. The student was found safely shortly after 12:30 p.m. behind a residence in the Boulder Bluff subdivision.

She has been reunited with her parents, police say.

According to a statement from the Berkeley County School District, the student left class voluntarily and then left the school grounds. The child's parents and authorities were notified immediately.

School officials say Boulder Bluff will operate on a normal dismissal schedule, and an update will be sent to parents via phone. 

Police say surveillance video shows the student left campus alone on foot.

District officials are at Boulder Bluff Elementary as a full investigation is underway, the statement reads.

Police say several agencies assisted in the search, and the Charleston County Sheriff's Office helicopter was used help locate the student. Berkeley County Sheriff's Office bloodhounds were used to track her route as well.

A reverse 911 service called "A Child Is Missing" sent out an alert to phones within a three mile radius of the school.

Boulder Bluff Elementary School is located at 400 Judy Drive in Goose Creek.
