Family pleads for answers in 20-year-old's disappearance

MONCKS CORNER, SC (WCSC) - Tonight, Berkeley County deputies are on the hunt for a man missing out of Moncks Corner.

Tyreek Pettigrew, 20, was last seen on Wednesday at 3 p.m.

It has been an emotional past couple of days for his family.

The family says they aren't angry, they just want Pettigrew back home.

"Just tell me where my son is," Tyreek's mother Felicia Pettigrew said. "That's all I want."

Officials from the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office say Pettigrew was last seen on Wednesday at the Fuel Express in Monks Corner.

A Facebook post from Berkeley County Sheriff's Office confirms Pettigrew was driving a black 2007 Infiniti G35.

Felicia says BCSO deputies found her car completely torched, but no one from Berkeley County Sheriff's Office has confirmed that information yet.

"The car was burnt so bad," Felicia said. "It was burnt so bad. When I got there, you could see the smoke just still coming from the car."

Pettigrew's mother and brother said that their community, their family and friends have all been incredibly supportive.

"The friends and the family have been with us since we found out that Tyreek was missing," Felicia said. "They are here days, hours, seconds. They are here with us."

But Felicia says the biggest help has come from her son Dashien.

"I couldn't do it by myself if my son wasn't here," Felicia said. "I couldn't do it without him."

If you have any information on the whereabouts of Pettigrew or if you've seen him since Wednesday, the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office is asking that you call (843) 719-4465.
