Charleston police find woman who was missing for 2 weeks

Missing Charleston woman was rescued from car trunk in 2010

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A woman who was missing in Charleston has been found and is safe.

Brandy Leigh Scott was located Friday morning and is fine, according to Charleston police spokesman Charles Francis.

Scott is the same woman who called 911 from the trunk of her car in 2010 after she says she was forced inside.

That’s according to the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office. Scott was last seen two weeks ago by her roommate on Line Street before she was found.

A 2010 incident report from Ravenel says Scott called 911 from the trunk of her car and that deputies were able to rescue her.

Live 5 News interviewed her right after the incident.

She told deputies she was forced inside the trunk by Jeremiah Brown and that he drove off with her inside.

The report from the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office says Scott let Brown use her EBT Card in exchange for cash. Brown wanted his money back when he says there was only $10 on her card and that he had given her more.

Brown said he never placed Scott in the trunk. Scott said he did and she says he assaulted her.

Witnesses listed in the report say Scott made a comment prior to the incident that if she staged a kidnapping she could get her kids back. Scott denied that.

According to court documents Brown's kidnapping charge was dropped because the victim did not cooperate. However, he did plead guilty to assault and battery.
