Search for missing woman ends at Highway 61 area
CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Search crews with the Charleston County Sheriff's Office have halted their search for missing 36-year-old woman Gayle McCaffrey.
Deputies wrapped up around 2:30 p.m. after searching the area of Highway 61 and Bees Ferry for several hours.
A mobile crime scene was set up in the Bi-Lo shopping center on Bees Ferry Road, near Highway 61.
Major Jim Brady said the search was not the result of a tip. He said investigators are just trying to narrow possibilities.
The searches were performed on Sanders Road off of Bees Ferry Road, and off Highway 61 just across the Dorchester County line. A helicopter was used along with all-terrain vehicles and foot searchers.
McCaffrey has not been seen since Mar. 17, when her husband told deputies they got into a fight.
