Union Co. deputies continue search for Jessica Ashmore


UNION Co., S.C. (WSPA) — Tuesday marked day 50 in the search for Jessica Ashmore.

The Union County Sheriff’s Office says they’ve been following leads since day one.

Crews are searching near Jeffries Farm Road.

Family members say that was the last place Ashmore was seen.

They also say she was staying on family property in a mobile home on that property before she went missing.

Jessica’s mother, Angela Ashmore, is keeping her faith as the search continues.

“I start to wonder after 50 days, am I gonna get the bad news that something has happened?” Angela said. 

Ashmore’s family has been searching and passing out flyers hoping for her safe return since the day she disappeared without her belongings.

“I’ve got faith and I got hope that she’s out there that she just can’t come home. Maybe she’s sick, maybe she’s not able to get away, but I’m just praying for a miracle at this point,” Angela said.

Union County deputies are working with a K9 unit from Spartanburg County and a search and rescue team from Virginia.

Union County Sheriff David Taylor says they are looking into information they have gotten off local cell towers that may give them clues to find Ashmore.

The Ashmore family says they are trying to stay strong until they get answers. 

The reward for information that leads to finding Jessica Ashmore is now $2,000.

If you have any information on Ashmore’s disappearance call 1-888-CRIME-SC or 864-429-1612.
