Missing University of South Carolina student Samantha Josephson has died, the school confirmed Saturday morning.
USC President Harris Pastides released a statement about Josephson’s death, saying, “Times like these leave me searching for words of wisdom and comfort.” The Columbia Police Department announced Friday that Josephson, a 21-year-old senior went missing early in the morning, asking people to call with information about her or the vehicle she was last seen getting into. On Saturday morning, Josephson’s father posted on Facebook that Samantha “is no longer with us but she will not be forgotten.”
No other new details about the case were early available. One of Josephson’s friends said they believe that she got into the wrong vehicle after calling for a ride share service.
