A South Carolina coroner says he's been called to the scene where a missing woman was found chained inside a large storage container.

Spartanburg County Coroner Rusty Clevenger confirmed in an email that he's at property near Woodruff where a woman was found Thursday after deputies got a tip from police investigating the disappearance of an Anderson couple.

Clevenger said he could not immediately talk about the situation.

Sheriff Chuck Wright said the woman told investigators there could be as many as four bodies on the property.

Forty-five-year-old Todd Christopher Kohlhepp of Moore has been charged with kidnapping. He was arrested at his home after the woman was found. He has a bond hearing scheduled at 2 p.m. Friday.

The woman's boyfriend, 32-year-old Charles Carver, remains missing.

A South Carolina man arrested after a woman was found chained inside a large storage container on his rural property is set to go before a judge.

A hearing was expected Friday afternoon for 45-year-old Todd Christopher Kohlhepp, a registered sex offender who owned the land where the woman was found Thursday.

Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright said the woman had disappeared in late August. She was found "chained up like a dog" inside a container that was about 30 feet by 15 feet. She told deputies other women might be on the property and the search for possible victims resumed Friday.

The woman's boyfriend, 32-year-old Charles Carver, is still missing.

The woman told deputies she had been kept in the container for two months and had been fed regularly.
