According to deputies, Alexis Ware was last seen dropping off her children to their father at the 7-Eleven on S.C. 29 North in Anderson County on January 30. Her red Honda sedan was discovered in a wooded area in McCormick County on February 2, approximately 50 miles away from where she was last seen.

"We are exhausting every possible avenue of inquiry on this case and will continue to work diligently until this case is solved," McBride said. "We are committed to finding Alexis and providing answers to her family."
