SEE IT: Police caravan descends on subdivision where 6-year-old Faye Swetlik vanished two days ago, neighborhood is on ‘shutdown’

Local reporters in South Carolina have shared video footage of a line of police vehicles headed toward the last known location of missing 6-year-old Faye Swetlik.

Late Wednesday afternoon, WIS News 10 shared video on Twitter of police vehicles with flashing lights entering the Churchill Heights neighborhood where Faye was last seen at her home on Londonderry Square, shortly after disembarking a school bus at around 3:45 p.m. Monday. Another reporter on the scene said that at least 10 vehicles were seen approaching the subdivision.


Also late Wednesday afternoon, the Lexington Sheriff Department tweeted video of a helicopter overhead the same area, as WIS News 10 reported that police had directed camera crews to exit the immediate neighborhood. Media crews are now posted just outside of the subdivision area.

A reporter for WNCN noted on Twitter that the neighborhood is on “shutdown,” and any vehicles coming in and out of the area will be checked by authorities.

Early Wednesday evening, a WTLX reporter said that the police vehicles had not exited the neighborhood in over an hour.

On Wednesday morning, authorities held a press conference and released video of Faye exiting the school bus, just over an hour before family members reported her missing.

Anyone with information is urged to call the police hotline at  803-205-4444.
