Missing Goose Creek student raises concerns about school safety

Posted: Updated:
GOOSE CREEK, SC -

A missing 10-year-old girl was found safe Wednesday in Goose Creek. Zoey Reynolds was found near a house in the Boulder Bluff subdivision about a block from Boulder Bluff Elementary where she walked out of her classroom and off campus.

Many parents at the school are concerned about security after the 10-year-old girl was able to walk off campus.   

"It upset me. But I mean, I'm trying to figure out how somebody just left and walked out the school but I don't know what they could've done it's very confusing," said one concerned parent.

Always Investigating, News 2 wanted to know how a student could walk out of class and go missing. While the Berkeley County School District will not release any information regarding security during Wednesday's incident, they did say that a school resource officer is assigned to the school.  However, district officials say the officer usually stays at the high school, and heads to Boulder Bluff once an incident happens. 

The district released a statement following the incident stating in part, "We do not, as a district policy, release our specific safety protocol or procedures to the public as we do not want anyone, well intentioned or otherwise, to breach our practices or thwart our efforts to keep children safe."

Additional information in this incident is expected to be revealed when the Goose Creek Police Department releases the incident report Thursday.
