Missing Cayce SC girl

Police in SC on Wednesday released a video of Faye Marie Swetlik getting off a school bus before she went missing earlier this week. She had gotten off the school bus and was playing in front of her home in Cayce, just outside of Columbia, according to the Cayce Department of Public Safety.

Faye is lactose intolerant and has a speech impediment, the department said.

There is no immediate indication that Faye was abducted, authorities said Tuesday. Investigators, however, are looking into all possibilities, Cayce public safety director Byron Snellgrove told reporters.

"It's possible she may be in the woods or at a neighbor's house, fallen in distress", he said. Antley said Faye got off at her normal bus stop, which is close to her home, adding her family knows she made it home, but sometime around 345pET her family realized she was missing.

Since local police launched their investigation into Faye's disappearance, the Federal Bureau of Investigations has joined in helping search for her, Cayce DPS authorities said at a press conference Wednesday.

Faye Marie Swetlik was last seen playing in her front yard last Monday.

"We're afraid of course, very distraught, but we're only thinking positive thoughts", family friend Monica Foutz said. "Just come home. We're ready for her to come home and find some more rocks".

Police are asking that anyone who has a video security system such as Ring and lives in the Churchill Heights neighborhood to contact law enforcement.

Police also said they have started following up on about 50 of the 80 tips they've received in the past 48 hours.

Investigators are also asking that neighbors review their home surveillance and search for any signs of Faye.

Swetlik's grandmother says this entire ordeal has been a nightmare, but the family is keeping up hope that Faye will return home safe and sound. So we're not leaving any stone unturned. "We are exhausting every resource we have and then some".
