Daughter of missing woman connected to accused kidnapper pleas for help to find her


The daughter of a missing woman who is connected to an accused kidnapper made a plea Wednesday for help to find her.

Thirteen-year old Cheyanne Holden last saw her mother Sharon Hayden when she was a baby.

She was adopted by one of her relatives.

Sharon Hayden has been missing since February from her home in Boiling Springs.

Authorities say Sharon Hayden is the girlfriend of Thomas Evans, who is accused of kidnapping a four-year old girl from her Johns Island home in February.

Evans was driving Hayden’s car when he was stopped in St. Stephen two days before the kidnapping.

Cheyanne says it’s possible her mom is dead.

“Because of him having the car two days,” she said. “I just want to know either way if she’s dead, then I’ll go to her funeral. If she’s alive then I want to talk to her, get to know her better.”

Anyone with information on Sharon Hayden should call the FBI at 803-551-4200.

Thomas Evans is facing both state and federal charges in the kidnapping.

He is being held at the Charleston County Detention Center.
