Aspen Jeter found safe after going missing on Thanksgiving; father arrested for murder – Fox News

Aspen Jeter, a 5-year-old who went missing Thanksgiving Day after her mother was found dead in her South Carolina home, has been found safe, officials announced Friday, according to reports. 

Her father, Antar Jeter, has been arrested for murder and theft after he allegedly stole the mother’s car, Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said during a press conference Friday, according to FOX 57. 

The Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office didn’t immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.

Authorities had said before she was found they believed she was with her father.

“Mr. Jeter, I want you to know if you are watching, if you see any articles, if you happen to see a newspaper or anything, that we are here to help,” family attorney Justin Bamberg said during a press conference Monday. “No one wants to see anything bad happen. We really want to know that both you and Aspen are OK.” 

Antar Antonio Jeter was believed to be traveling with Aspen Jeter, according to the Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office.
