The Disappearance of Alexis Ware

Alexis Ware has been missing since January 30th, 2022. The then-29-year-old woman was last seen at a 7-Eleven gas station in Anderson, South Carolina. Alexis went to the gas station around 7:30 PM so she could hand off her children with her son's father, TJ Patterson. Surveillance footage confirmed that Alexis and TJ left the gas station in separate cars. Alexis never returned home and has never been seen or heard from again.

Prior to vanishing, Alexis and her children spent the weekend at her mother's house, located approximately 80 miles away from her own home in Greenville, South Carolina. While there, Alexis reportedly told her mother some troubling things. She mentioned that someone had been calling her incessantly, despite repeatedly blocking this person's number. Alexis seemed afraid of this person, but she did not reveal their identity. Alexis also told her mother she feared that she would not make it to her 30th birthday, which was just two months away. Her mother questioned why she felt that way, but Alexis would not say anything more about the matter.

Alexis returned to her home in Greenville on Sunday afternoon. Later, she drove 40 miles to Anderson so she could meet up with TJ and drop off the children. TJ later told police that Alexis planned to follow him to his mother's house. The surveillance footage shows Alexis' car following TJ's out of the gas station, but then she abruptly sped up and drove away. TJ tried calling her, but she did not answer the phone. After that, Alexis seemingly vanished into thin air. 

On February 2nd, 2022, Alexis' car was found abandoned in McCormick, South Carolina - located approximately 70 miles away from Anderson. Alexis' phone, keys, and wallet were found inside the vehicle. The hair bonnet that she was wearing before she vanished was found on the ground next to the car. Alexis' family members stated that they cannot think of any reason for her to travel to this location.

Throughout the investigation, it was revealed that Alexis' phone pinged one final time at 8:15 PM. Highway surveillance cameras captured her car driving through Augusta, Georgia and then later returning to South Carolina. These appear to be the last known sightings of her car before it was found in McCormick.

No suspects or persons of interest have been publicly named in the case. TJ Patterson was investigated, and police do not believe that he was involved in Alexis' disappearance. Several searches have been conducted, but unfortunately no further sign of Alexis has been found. 

Anyone with information that could lead to Alexis' whereabouts is asked to contact authorities at 864-260-4405 or submit a tip through CrimeStoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
