PAMPLICO, S.C. — A 21-year-old Florida woman went to Myrtle Beach to visit her father last week, but never made it to his home. Two days after she was reported missing the woman was found dead in South Carolina.
Sheridan Wahl intended to visit her father during the trip. But a day after she failed to arrive, her mother posted a desperate message for help on Facebook to find the woman, according to Fox Carolina.
“Please help me find my daughter. Last seen at 300 S. Ocean in Myrtle Beach. We haven’t heard from her since 1p and her phone is not picking up,” Kelly DeArment Wahl wrote on Sept. 20.
“She could have been driving back from Myrtle Beach to Tampa. Let let me know if anyone has seen her. Otherwise please pray she comes home to us safely!”
Sadly, a grim discovery was made on Sept. 21. The woman’s body was discovered behind a fire station in Pamplico, South Carolina, which is 50 miles west of Myrtle Beach, according to the news outlet.

The young woman’s cause of death has not been determined, according to the New York Post.
“We are heartbroken beyond belief to share the news that our beloved Sheridan Lynne Wahl has passed,” her mother posted after learning of the tragedy.
“Sheridan was our cherished and loving daughter, sister, niece and friend. She will be missed more than words can ever express.”
Her roommate, Elizabeth Echenique, wrote on GoFundMe that Wahl had a “heart of gold.”
“She was an amazing musician and many times would sit down to make music for fun and relaxation alone and with friends.
“She loved fashion and was very healthy. She was spontaneous and knew how to make you laugh … So, what happened to this kind, loving, talented and beautiful young woman?”
Hopefully, detectives will be able to figure it out.
