Spartanburg Public Safety is looking for Evelyn Shelton--missing since Friday.
Officers believe its possible Shelton is a victim of foul play.
Captain Randy Hardy says Shelton’s car was found along Hayne Street in Spartanburg the day after she vanished. No one at the business the car was found at reported seeing her there.
Investigators say she was last seen on North Dean Street in the city, Friday night, by a man she met for a study date.
He has been interviewed by officers and isnt considered a suspect.
In the meantime, the Shelton family is trying to remain hopeful, Timothy Shelton, 39, said. His father is keeping busy to keep from thinking about what may have happened to his daughter. Another sister is taking it hard, because Evelyn Shelton was at her side to console her when her fiance recently died.
The five siblings are close. They grew up in the Boiling Springs area. Evelyn Shelton graduated from Boiling Springs High in 1986.
Timothy Shelton said his sister's roommate became concerned Sunday night when Evelyn Shelton had not returned home over the weekend.
Shelton is described as a black woman, 5’2”, 110 lbs, black hair and brown eyes.
A reward of up to $2,000 is offered for information on her whereabouts, leading to her recovery.
