South Carolina News

SUMTER, S.C. (AP) – A South Carolina woman was found dead in her apartment and police say her 5-year-old daughter is missing.

News outlets report Nevaha Lashy Adams has been missing since Monday evening after a relative discovered her mother’s body. Nevaha is described as a 4-foot-3, 50-pound girl with braided black hair and colored beads.

Sumter Police say they haven’t determined how 29-year-old Sharee Bradley died. An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.

A news release from police says 28-year-old Daunte Maurice Johnson was arrested after he was seen running away from the residence. Police say they aren’t certain what role Johnson’s played in Nevaha’s disappearance, if any.

No charges have been released and it’s unclear whether Johnson has an attorney.
