Brown said she had been chained by the neck inside the container, and said she was given food regularly.

Brown went missing with her boyfriend,  32-year-old Charlie Carver, also of Anderson County.  Investigators are still looking for Carver.

Police arrested 45-year-old Todd Kohlhepp, the registered owner of the Wofford Road property where Brown was found, and took him to a nearby detention center.

Kohlhepp, a registered sex offender, was convicted of a kidnapping in Arizona when he was 16 years old, according to South Carolina officials.

Charges are pending.

Brown is being evaluated at an area medical facility, according to Wright.
