Clarendon County, SC (WLTX) - Clarendon County deputies are searching for a missing 16-year-old girl who was last seen at school.
Officers are trying to find Nima Patel.
Patel, who lives in Santee, is a student at Clarendon Hall in Summerton. Sheriff Randy Garrett says Patel was reported missing by her mother and sister at 4:00pm Tuesday when they went to pick her up from school and she wasn't there.
Investigators say she arrived at school at 8 a.m. , walked inside with her cousin, and then left school grounds.
