New details released for missing Aynor woman

Angie Pipkin

This Saturday a candlelight vigil will be held to remember all those who are missing in our area, including 32-year-old Angie Pipkin, who hasn't been seen since January.

Gail Pipkin says she last saw her daughter, Angie, January 16, when her grandfather dropped her off at the IGA in Aynor to meet a friend.

"This is very unusual for her. She would always call because she really loves her family and she knows I worry about her," said Gail Pipkin.

After six days went by and still no word from Angie, the family reported her missing on January 22.

More then a month later Horry County Police released new details about where Angie was last seen.

"Our detectives have come up with new information confirming that she was in Socastee which was not previously known. As a result of that, we want to get it back out there again," said Lt. Robert Kegler with the Horry County Police Department.

Lt. Robert Kegler says Angie was seen on surveillance video on Socastee Boulevard just after 9:30 at night on January 16th.

"She was last seen at the Turtle Mart, and then Wilco, I think that's the way it went; surveillance camera showed her there," said Gail Pipkin.

As days turn into weeks, Gail says she hopes the community will continue to show support.

"It's really hard on the family when someone goes missing. You just don't know all the unanswered questions and you know, not knowing, it just hurts so bad," said Gail Pipkin.

If you've seen Angie or have any information, you're asked to call Horry County Police at 915-TIPS.

A candlelight vigil for the missing will be held Saturday, March 1 at 7 p.m. at Aynor Park.
