Tina Diana Snipes was initially believed to have last been seen on Aug. 15 at approximately 3 p.m. at the Horizon EZ Shop on Highway 174. But in November, Charleston County deputies said new details had emerged in the investigation that showed Snipes made it back to her home on Maxie Road the day she vanished.

Deputies said someone gave her a ride to her home. She was not known to drive herself.

Investigators found her belongings on the ground within walking distance of her home.

“I believe that someone she knew had something to do with this or knows something,” Lott said. “I’m her voice and I will not give up until we know what happened to my sister, until we find her or found out what happened to her. I’m not going to give up.”

At the time of her disappearance, Snipes was wearing a textured tank top, yoga pants, flip flops, a necklace and sunglasses. Investigators say she always wears her hair in a bun and frequented that business.

She is 5-foot-3 and weighs 113 pounds.

If you or anyone you know has information on her whereabouts please contact the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office at: 843-743-7200 or the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office at: 843-549-2211.
