Prayers that Margaret comes home safe. How scary! I hate how common home invasions are becoming now days..
I live about 60 miles from where this happened. I'll definitely be on the lookout for the car and Margaret.

There is not a lot of information yet.
Why would they take a 78 yr old woman?
If it is a home invasion, why not
just take her money or valuables
and leave her alone?
Prayers for Ms Gooding.God has a plan to help bring justice to the world -- and his plan is us.

It's horrible - kidnapping an elderly person, and crimes against the elderly in general. Poor woman must have been so frightened. I'm so glad this had a happy ending.

Missing woman Margaret Gooding found alive in trunk
Family members of 78-year-old Margaret Gooding say she was found in the trunk of a car about 30 miles away in a Walterboro parking lot.
"The neighbor called and said he had heard a gunshot, and so my wife checked and couldn't get her, so she called 911," said her brother-in-law, Oddis Gooding.
"Officers responded to a call out here this morning about 1am, upon responding they saw some things that weren't quite in order, then their the investigation started," said Hampton County sheriff T.C. Smalls.
Investigators say Gooding was shot in the stomach but found alive and conscious in the trunk of a car around 4pm Monday.
Family members tell WTOC she was talking and was taken to MUSC in Charleston. She was last listed in stable condition.
"They have found her, she was located in Walterboro, I think she was in the mall, I'm not sure which mall, but she was alive in the trunk of the car," said Oddis Gooding. "
There is still no information on any possible suspects, but investigators say they are looking for persons of interest.
poor dear -- she had to be terrified

I do not know if this is related BUT there were several Hampton County Sheriff's cars at the High School this morning.
OTOH it could be for another reason ( ie, we have had several gang shootings recently)
