Columbia Police searching for missing woman

Columbia Police Chief W. H. “Skip” Holbrook announced that investigators are searching for a missing 56-year-old woman.

Aeron Young was last seen walking away from her home on Oceola Street on the morning of February 4.

A relative reported her missing that day when she didn’t return home. Even though it’s believed that Young took her medicine with her when she left, loved ones are concerned about her well-being and safety.  According to her husband, leaving home for an extended period of time is unusual behavior for her.

Young is Asian, approximately 5’0” and weighing 140 lbs. with brown hair and gray eyes. She was last seen wearing a black jacket and tan jeans.

Citizens with information on Young’s whereabouts are encouraged to contact Crimestoppers in any of the following ways:   CALL toll-free, 888-CRIME-SC.  LOG onto:, and click on the red “Submit a tip” tab. DOWNLOAD the new P3 Tips App for Apple or Android devices.
