WELLFORD, S.C. (WSPA) — More than a year after a Spartanburg County woman disappeared, police will begin interviewing those closest to her.

The 53-year-old woman’s family reported her missing to Wellford police days later. Police and Spartanburg County deputies have tried to find her while loved ones have prayed for answers and closure in her disappearance.

Wellford  Police Department said in a Facebook post that investigators will begin interviewing Turner’s family this week. 

The agency quoted Turner’s daughter, Xena Turner, in the post: “It feels like a hole that you can’t fill. No matter how much I try, I’m never going to be as happy as I felt before because something is missing.”  

Her family has offered a reward for information that led to finding her.

Turner was last seen walking near Highway 292 and Ridge Road. Police say she has a medical condition and went missing without her medication.
