A body was found on Friday afternoon, not far from where a mother vanished. That mom is central Florida native Myranda Whisenant Southern.
Southern's family became concerned earlier in the week when she never arrived to pick up her kids from vacation with their grandmother, who lives in Zellwood, Florida.
Officials in Laurens County, South Carolina confirmed that the body of a white female was found around 12:30 p.m. on Friday as a man was clearing some brush.
Southern was last seen and heard from in Greenville County on Monday. She was due to arrive to pick up her kids in Zellwood on Tuesday.
Greenville County officials are looking into whether or not the body is that of Southern. An autopsy is scheduled for Saturday morning.
