Devin Ham Ivey, 22, was last seen at the Olanta Budget Inn on June 9.

Her last known location was the Olanta Budget Inn, in Florence, South Carolina. Devin was last seen with her husband whom police arrested today for providing false information and a parole violation.

Search teams have been combing miles of ground and air in hopes of finding Devin.
