AIKEN, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - The Aiken County Sheriff’s Office confirms a man deputies are looking for in Edgefield County has a history with law enforcement.

Back in 2017, we found he was connected to a homicide by child abuse case.

The Edgefield County Sheriff’s Office was searching the U.S. 25 South and Sweetwater Road area on Sunday for Trevonta Langford about an ongoing investigation with several outstanding felony warrants.

Back in 2017, incident reports say deputies responded to the 510 block of Samuels Street in North Augusta on March 31 in response to a medical emergency involving a child. Langford was later arrested on charges of homicide by child abuse after investigators say a 1-month-old child in his care died from physical abuse.

Langford was denied bond and court records show that case is still open. The Edgefield County Sheriff’s Office says homicide charges are not related to their search for him.

Law enforcement officers say they are continuing their search for Langford. He is a black male approximately 6 feet 3 inches tall and 240 pounds and last seen wearing all black clothing.

Edgefield County deputies are being assisted in the search by the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office, North Augusta Department of Public Safety, South Carolina Law Enforcement Division and South Carolina Department of Natural Resources.

Residents are urged to contact the sheriff’s office immediately if anyone matching this description is observed in this area.
