ROCK HILL, S.C. -- The York County Sheriff's Office released four new photos of a York County woman who was last seen last Wednesday.

The photos just released by the York County Sheriff's Office are not related to the investigation, authorities say, as they were captured in early June.

Officials say they released the photos to give the public a better image of missing Susan Peterson. The surveillance photos are from a Walgreens across the road from a plasma-donation center in Charlotte that Peterson was known to visit.

Although Peterson's brother told detectives she was heading to Charlotte to donate plasma, there's no indication at this point to show Peterson actually made it to a plasma donation center in Charlotte the day she disappeared.

Peterson’s car, a white 2009 Ford Ranger, was discovered in Randolph County, just outside of Asheboro. The car has yielded no clues about where she might be, investigators said Saturday.

Susan Diane Peterson’s brother reported her missing Wednesday, August 14, when she didn’t come home from donating blood plasma in Charlotte.  No trace of her was seen until Friday, when Randolph County deputies found her car at the edge of the Uwharrie Forest.

Randolph County sheriff’s deputies got a 911 call about a suspicious car on Pisgah Covered Bridge Road, near Pisgah Church, said Randolph County Sheriff’s Capt. Derrick Hill. The area is just outside of Asheboro.

Capt. Hill said teams from the Sheriff’s Office, Ash-Rand Rescue Squad and Randolph Emergency Management searched for nearly eight hours Friday night and more than five hours Saturday morning in the area around the car, but found nothing.

The Highway Patrol helicopter and its heat-seeking FLIR cameras Friday flew over without picking up a trace, said Hill.  Deputies brought out the dogs Saturday.  

“We also ran another K-9 track, but found no evidence of Ms. Peterson being around the truck at this time,” said Hill.  

Deputies did find a plastic bag from Dollar General near the truck, containing the same brand of cigarettes they found in the truck, but can’t say for sure if they’re connected to Peterson’s disappearance.  The bag also contained an old receipt from a Charlotte drug store.

York County sheriff’s spokesperson Trent Faris said investigators have a list of plasma donation clinics that Peterson was known to go to, but have been unable to reach any of them to confirm if she visited.

Peterson’s brother Michael did not want to comment on his sister’s disappearance, except to say he was “very worried.”  Michael Peterson said his sister had no known connection to the Randolph County area.

The York County Sheriff’s Office asks anyone with information about Susan Peterson call them at 803-628-3059, or York County CrimeStoppers at 1-877-409-4321.
