By Jonathan Oh

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) -- Investigators are planning to update the community on the search for Gabrielle Swainson Tuesday.

The Richland County Sheriff's Department, along with the FBI, will be holding a press conference at 10 a.m. Tuesday to discuss the search for the missing teen.

Gabrielle Swainson was last seen on Saturday morning on August 18. Her mother said she left the teen in the early morning hours for work, but when she returned later that morning, her daughter was nowhere to be found.

A $6,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the whereabouts of the missing teen. Sheriff Leon Lott says the donation was put together by his department, Crimestoppers, and an anonymous donor.

Lamar Advertising has also donated a billboard featuring the missing girl.

If you know where Gabrielle Swainson is, call the Richland County Sheriff's Department or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
