CALHOUN COUNTY, S.C. (WCIV) -- Three people have been arrested and charged in connection with the disappearance and murder of an Orangeburg teenager, said Calhoun County Sheriff Thomas Summers.

Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said Kymmara Randolph, 17, was last seen by her roommate on Feb. 13.

Bryan McKnight, 28, of St. Matthews, has been charged with murder and obstructing justice. Jerry McKnight, 45, of St. Matthews is charged with murder. Jonathan McKnight, 20, of St. Matthews has been charged with accessory after the fact of murder.

In an initial release from Orangeburg County, deputies said they believed Randolph left her Eastwood Circle home with Bryan McKnight around 8 p.m. the night she went missing.

"We have worked around the clock for several days investigating this crime and locating the individuals responsible for Kymmara Randolph's death", said Summers. "When we developed credible information that Ms. Randolph was killed last week in our county, we have been searching tirelessly for her body and will continue to do so."

If you have any information, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
