Rescue workers are searching the mountains of western North Carolina for a South Carolina woman who's been missing since Monday.
Friends say 29-year-old Kristy Thornbrew of Florence, S.C., left a small cabin in hopes of seeing sunrise from a mountaintop near Bat Cave.
Buncombe County Sheriff's Lt. Randy Sorrells says there is nothing to indicate foul play. But the State Bureau of Investigation is processing the scene.
Her boyfriend, Mark Carmichael, says she missed a ride back to Florence after being in North Carolina for a concert. Carmichael had been in Charleston and did not attend the concert.
Sorrells says Thornbrew called friends around 9 a.m. Monday to say she was heading down the mountain.
