Grand Strand Crime

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) — A woman charged with kidnapping after an 11-year-old was missing in Myrtle Beach was given a $250,000 personal recognizance bond Wednesday.

Amy Sue Lease, 53, was arrested and charged Wednesday morning, according to Myrtle Beach police. She was given a personal recognizance bond with the condition that she has no contact with the victim, the victim’s mother, or the Department of Social Services protector.

A personal recognizance bond means she will be released from jail on those conditions without having to pay any money.

Police reported the child missing on Tuesday and said he may have been with an “unauthorized” family member, possibly driving to West Virginia.

Police said in a Facebook post late Tuesday night that the child had been found safe. Count on News13 for updates.
