A 25-YEAR-OLD man has been reported missing after he was last seen getting into a car with his recurring girlfriend.
Devantae Griffin’s partner, Jessica Strahan, has been arrested for obstructing justice in connection with a missing persons case, officials said.
A South Carolina sheriff’s office said Devantae Griffin was reported missing on March 30.
Griffin was last seen just after midnight on March 29 “getting in the car” with Strachan, his cousin Consana Ferguson said WIEFF.
Ferguson said: “When he didn’t answer the phone for me on Tuesday morning, I knew something was wrong.”
He added that Devantae’s brother motivated her to call the missing man, and the call went to voicemail.
She called his brother back and asked who Devantae was dating, and the brother reportedly said, “Jessica picked him up.”
Investigators said they spoke to Strachan the day after Griffin was officially reported missing, March 31.
The sheriff’s office eventually learned that Strachan had given them misleading information after that conversation, and she then became a person of interest.
Investigators said they asked her to come back for another interview, but she left Florida without notifying the officials.
They obtained a search warrant and broke into her home the same day.
The following day, the sheriff’s office obtained an obstruction of justice warrant and she was reportedly arrested in Miami, Florida.
The family told the outlet that the couple has had a volatile history.
Griffin’s aunt, Beverly Griffin, claimed the family had previously heard Strachan threaten Devantae in what she described as a “toxic” relationship.
“It’s been a roller coaster ride of emotions,” Beverly said. “We just want her to start talking so we can take him home.”
