Kala Brown, a woman who has been missing along with her live-in boyfriend since late August, was found chained like a dog inside a storage container in Spartanburg County, South Carolina, on Thursday.

Brown, 30, was found when police searching a large property heard banging noises coming from the container, WYFF News reported. Police were acting on a tip when they searched the property. Tax records say the property belongs to Todd Kohlhepp, who was arrested at his home in Moore, South Carolina, and taken into custody Thursday. Kohlhepp is a registered sex offender in Arizona.

Brown told authorities that she was held in the container for two months since she had gone missing. Brown was fed regularly but was “obviously traumatized,” Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright told WYFF. She was checked out at Spartanburg Regional Hospital and released Thursday night.

Cadaver dogs were on the property Friday after Brown told police that there were four dead bodies buried on the property, and the coroner was called to the scene.

“We’re trying to make sure we don’t have a serial killer on our hands,” Wright said to WYFF. “It very possibly could be what we have.”

Brown’s boyfriend Charlie Carver, who disappeared around the same time, remains missing. His car was found on the property where Brown was being held, NBC News reported. The case attracted national attention when Facebook posts began appearing on Carver’s page. The postings said the two had just left on their own, but police found their dog in the apartment with no food or water and questioned the postings.

“It’s a miracle,” friend Makenzie Durham said to NBC. “They were missing for two months and we found one person alive and well, so miracles do happen.”
