          How Kala Brown’s Mom Learned Her Daughter Was Found — And Alive

          VIDEO

          February 13, 2017

          On November 3, 2016, missing woman Kala Brown was found alive in what authorities described as horrific conditions. The 30-year-old was reportedly chained at the neck like a dog and locked inside a storage container on an isolated plot of land in South Carolina. Police said Kala had been held captive by Todd Kohlhepp, a local realtor who Kala said hired her to do odd jobs around his property, since she and her boyfriend, Charlie Carver, went missing on August 31.

          “Somebody knocked at the door, and it was one of the detectives that I recognized, and he said, ‘We found your daughter,’” Newsom remembers. “Of course, I couldn’t breathe. And I looked from him to the lady that was there and she said, ‘She’s fine.’” She says they told her that Kala wanted to see her and that they would drive her to the hospital. “That was the longest drive I’ve ever had in my life.”

          Newsom says that once she saw her daughter, she ran to her. “I couldn’t let go of her,” she says.
