If you see South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford strolling around Little Five, please let that state know ASAP.
According to the Columbia State, Sanford's whereabouts have been unknown since last Thursday. Neither the governors office nor the division in charge of the governor's security have been able to reach Sanford, who left the S.C. Governor's Mansion in a black SLED Suburban SUV four days ago.
When asked, the Lt. Gov. and various state senators had no idea where Sanford might be. Surely his wife knows, though:
First lady Jenny Sanford told The Associated Press today her husband has been gone for several days and she doesn't know where he is.
Oh. That's odd.
Of course, he may just have wanted to get away from the kids and the stresses of running the great Palmetto State. The Columbia newspaper reports:
[Sanford's wife] said the governor said he needed time away from their children to write something.
The governors office issued a statement Monday afternoon: "Gov. Sanford is taking some time away from the office this week to recharge after the stimulus battle and the legislative session, and to work on a couple of projects that have fallen by the wayside."
So where might the truant South Carolina chief exec be? Well, one clue suggests he might very well be near Atlanta. According to authorities, a mobile telephone tower in the area picked up a signal from his phone.
The South Carolina Governor has brown, slightly graying hair, and is of average height and weight. He is not known to bite or bark. The South Carolina Governor's office can be contacted at 803-734-2100; in the event of a Sanford sighting, be sure to contact them with any leads.
