Native Coffee Countian Still Missing After Almost 4 Months

A woman from Coffee County who was living in Edisto Island, South Carolina, disappeared “under suspicious circumstances,” almost four months ago, and her whereabouts are still unknown. 

The Charleston County Sherriff’s office first believed that Tina Diana Snipes, age 43, was last seen on Wednesday, August 15, at the Horizon EZ Shop, a convenience store in Edisto Island, at 3:00 p.m. that day. However, on November 20, investigators reported that Snipes made it back to her home on Maxie Road the day of her disappearance.

Investigators also reported “new evidence revealed that she was given a ride to her home (she was not known to drive) and they found some of her belongings on the ground within walking distance of her residence.”

Snipes still has family in Coffee County and they are asking that anyone in this area who knows to “keep a lookout” for her.

Snipes’ sister Lisa Lott, who resides in Coffee County, spoke to The Enterprise, and stated, “She is my baby sister and a part of my heart. I’m not giving up. I love and miss her and need answers or closure. We are praying everyday that we find her safe, but if not, we just want justice.”

According to the reports, Snipes is described as a white female, who stands 5’3” and weighs 113 pounds.  The last time she was seen, she was said to be wearing a necklace, tank top, sunglasses, yoga pants, flip flops, and her hair was pulled up in a bun. A relative of Snipes from Douglas is said to have last spoke via telephone to Snipes about a week before her disappearance.  

If anyone has any information regarding Snipes’ whereabouts, please contact local authorities, the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office, or Crimestoppers of the Lowcountry at 843-554-1111. This is still an active investigation.

Edisto Island is about four hours from Douglas and is located between Hilton Head and Charleston.
