Horry County police working four missing persons cases


HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – The Horry County Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating four women who have been reported over the last few weeks.

The HCPD posted information about the four separate cases on the department’s Facebook page on Thursday. The missing women are:

  • Daniella Luciano was reported missing on May 23. Luciano has not had contact with her family for about four years, but a recent picture of her has surfaced and shows her passed out on the floor. There is no current address, phone number or clothing description for Luciano, but she has a known drug problem. She is possibly still in the Little River area.
  • Miranda Nicole Owens was last seen on June 12 in the area of 1140 McDowell Short Cut Road, in the Murrells Inlet section of Horry County. She made comments such as “she had already dies [sic] three times and that she wanted to die again,” prior to leaving the residence with a red-in-color suitcase which was later recovered. It was learned that Owens has a history of drug abuse and as such her ex-husband would not allow her to see her children. She was last seen wearing a black drewss with flowers on it, black sandals and she is believed to have a lot of needle marks on her arms.
  • Leah Tuttle came to Horry County on June 10 with friends and was supposed to be staying at Ocean Lake Campground located in Surfside Beach. Her godmother last spoke to her on June 11, when Tuttle said she had been in a fight. She was reported missing on June 13. Tuttle does not have a working phone and it is unknown what she was last wearing and there is no vehicle information at this time. There are no suspicious circumstances at this time.
  • Angy Ulloa was last seen on June 6 around 11 p.m. She did contact her family and told them that she was OK and looking for a job but would not tell them where she was. There have been several attempts to contact her, but there has been no answer. There is no last known clothing or vehicle description information and there does not appear to be any suspicious activity.

Anyone with information on any of their locations is asked to call Horry County dispatch at (843) 248-1520.
