Pregnant woman taken from home following break in, police say

September 23, 2018

The Edgefield County Sheriff’s Office and SLED are working together to find a pregnant 18-year-old who they believe was forcefully taken from her home Sunday morning.

Kerrie Edgerly was taken from a home along Ryan Ranch Court – north of Belvedere and I-20 – following a break in, according to Edgefield County Sheriff’s Office Cpl. Robbie Harter.

Harter said two white men entered the house and demanded money, but that proved “unsuccessful.” So, Harter continued, the men took Edgerly.

Edgerly is 36 weeks pregnant.

The initial call came in around 9:30 a.m., the corporal said.

As of 12:45 p.m. Sunday, the Edgefield County Sheriff’s Office did not know where Edgerly was.

Calls made to SLED were not immediately returned.
