UPDATE — 4:28 p.m. December 11th, 2105 (EDT) Kimberly Beck has been located alive and well. According to the Florence County Sheriff’s Department, Kimberly had been using a basement type window and a crawl space under an addition of the home to conceal her location. Police emptied the crawl space upon their search of the home several days ago and she was not there.
She would use the crawl space to enter and leave the home when her family was gone. Since the initial search, she had stored food water and clothes in the crawl space. She concealed herself inside of “clutter” in the crawl space. Kimberly was found by Florence County Deputies tracing a wireless internet connection to a laptop she had with her.
