FLORENCE COUNTY, S.C. (WBTW) — A body found in Florence County Tuesday was identified as a missing person who was last seen in Myrtle Beach, according to Coroner Keith von Lutcken.

Sheridan Wahl, 21, of Tampa was reported missing Sunday, according to the Myrtle Beach Police Department.

Wahl’s body was found Tuesday morning behind the Hanna-Salem Fire Department on Highway 378 in Pamplico, von Lutcken said.

According to a police report, Wahl came to Myrtle Beach to visit a family member. She FaceTimed a family member at about 1:00 p.m. Sunday in the 300 block of South Ocean Boulevard.

She tried to rent a scooter but was denied because she wasn’t wearing shoes, so she said she was going home.

The family member told her to stay the night to not have to make the long drive home and hasn’t been heard from since.

A family member said Wahl could have been headed back to Tampa.

No other information was immediately available.

Correction: An initial push alert stated that the woman was found in Myrtle Beach. It has been clarified to us that the location where she was found is separate from the city.
