    SC - Elizabeth Ward, 23, Charleston, 14 April 2012

    Charleston city police are looking for a woman who abandoned her car while it was still running on the Ravenel bridge on Saturday.

    Highway Patrol found the car still running in the fourth lane of the bridge around 5:30 A.M. but couldn't find the driver.

    Now police are looking for 23-year-old Elizabeth Ashley Ward. They say she was the last person to drive the car. She is a black female, who is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 180 lbs. She was last seen wearing a multicolored beanie, a plaid shirt, a denim jacket and blue jeans.

    According to Charleston Police, they are not investigating it as a crime but they are actively searching for Ward.

    They found her headphones and IPad at the scene as well.

    Did they look under the bridge?
    I can't imagine a reason 2 hop out of ur vehicle in the fourth lane of traffic & leave the car running & stuff left in it. To me, she either jumped (not even sure what kind of bridge) or someone quickly grabbed her.imo

    After a car was found unoccupied and running on the Ravenel Bridge early Saturday, authorities searched the water around the bridge looking for a possible jumper.

    Maybe she left the car that way to make it LOOK like a suicide?
    That's better than an actual suicide...
    I wonder if there was any note or comments made to anyone?

    I assume there was no damage to the car which would have indicated an accident?
    If a cop pulled you over there, is there a place to actually pull over?

    I cant seem to find ANYTHING about this women...anywhere.
    Im imagining she either jumped or got out of her car...maybe an accident/fender-bender...and someone took her.
    This is an odd one.

    Seriously??? Its hard to believe that NOBODY saw this women. I mean...she would have had a "captive audience"..AFAIC. A HUGE bridge at 5:30am...a women on foot. Somebody saw SOMETHING

    I literally just checked every single Charleston, SC news outlet for an update, or more information on Elizabeth and can find NOTHING. It seems the only article out there about her is the one I originally posted from Live5 News. So weird.

    This is the third black woman to come up missing with their car running - could there possibly be a serial killer at work here? The girl from Atlanta around Christmas and then the one in Missouri.

    Well the one in Atlanta (Stacey English) was found and her death was ruled accidental. The woman in St. Louis has never been found that I know of.

    It is weird. But a car left running on a huge bridge like that makes me think suicide. At 5:30 am I'm not sure how bad the traffic would be already. She might have pulled over and waited until there no one was coming.

    There is no where to pull over on the bridge. It is dangerous any time of day to have car trouble or block a lane, but there are cameras on the bridges...i wonder if LE is reviewing those.
