WILLISTON, S.C. -- The family of a missing 23-year-old Williston man is now offering a cash reward. This comes as the police department has made an arrest relating to the investigation.

Pamela Shante Priester, 33, was arrested Saturday and charged with obstruction of justice.

Priester was allegedly the person Brown was going to see when he was last seen. She has since been released on bond.

Investigators say she remains a suspect in the investigation of the disappearance of Brown. They do expect to make any additional arrests.

Williston Police had a team of cadaver dogs and rescue crews come out Sunday from North Carolina, but nothing was found.

The family is hoping someone with information will contact them or the authorities so that they can bring Brownhome.

Williston Police say the family is offering a reward for information leading to the location of Brown or if he is deceased, the location of his remains.

Brown has been missing since Feb. 24. He was last seen on Lake Drive at Buice Circle in Williston. He was walking and was going to meet someone on Glendale Avenue. His disappearance is considered very suspicious.

His cellphone and Facebook account have shown no activity since that time.

If you have any information, call the Williston Police Department at (803) 266-7013 or Barnwell Dispatch at (803) 541-1080.
