BEAUFORT COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Beaufort County investigators say police in Georgia have located a vehicle belonging to a man sought in connection to the disappearance of a 47-year-old woman.

Officials with the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office say the vehicle of 40-year-old Osman Galicia -Escobedo was located in Savannah on a rural road near a flea market.

Investigators have been searching for Galicia-Escobedo in reference to his girlfriend, Margarito Elena Gonzalez-Almazan, who was reported missing by family members on Dec. 2

Authorities say Gonzalez was last seen with Galicia-Escobedo on the night of Nov. 30 at the end of a family party she had hosted at the Shady Glen community center.

Family members told investigators that Gonzalez was last seen in the company of Galicia-Escobedo, who had been with her at the party, and was with her at her home on 382 Shady Glen Cir. when the last guests departed.

According to an incident report, family members said they witnessed several arguments between the two in recent weeks, and that Galicia had a tendency to become aggressive when drinking.

After Gonzalez failed to make contact with her family and was unable to be reached by phone all day Sunday, family members became concerned. When she was not located at her home, authorities say family members checked Galicia's residence at Simmons Cay apartments. Galicia's roommates told investigators that he had not returned to the apartment since leaving Saturday evening.

No contact has been made with either Gonzalez or Galicia. According to investigators, Gonzalez is being considered a missing and endangered person as the circumstances of her disappearance are suspicious in nature.

Galicia is being sought for questioning, being the last known person to have contact with her.

Gonzalez is a Hispanic female, approximately 5'02", 130 lbs with shoulder length black hair. She was last seen wearing a green blouse, white pants, and a black bomber-style jacket with white lining.

The Sheriff's Office is asking anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of either Margarito Elena Gonzalez-Almazan or Osman Galicia-Escobedo to contact either Investigator Cpl. B. Cooler at 843-255-3423, Capt. B. Bromage at 843-816-8013, or Crimestoppers.
