The Columbia, SC Police Department is searching for three missing persons who left Columbia on January 7 en route to Shreveport. They have not been seen since then.

Brady Brown, 49, his uncle Eddie Lee Cobb, 68, and Ella Williams, 42, a family friend, were in Columbia on January 4 to attend a funeral.
