Divers continue search for Elledge Friday

Divers continue searching the Lamine River in Cooper County for a missing Columbia woman on Friday.

Police say they’re confident they’re searching in the right place for Mengqi Ji Elledge. They’ve been in that part of the river near Highway 41 this week since Tuesday.

Mengqi has not been seen in nearly two months. Prosecutors say her husband is the prime suspect, but they have not charged him over her disappearance yet.

Joseph Elledge is in jail, but it’s on charges he abused the couple’s one-year-old daughter.
