Missing SC Woman Connected to Charlotte Drug Dealer, Also Missing

A missing woman from James Island, NC, is believed to be connected with a Charlotte man on the run for drug charges.

Tonight at 9:00, "America's Most Wanted" is expected to feature the story on the Lifetime Channel.

Investigators say a Charlotte man wanted on federal drug charges may be linked to the case of a missing woman from Charleston.

Jessica “Emily” Gregoriev, 29, was last heard from March 19. She is believed to be the girlfriend of John Thomas Reardon of Charlotte.

Reardon, 36, is wanted for conspiracy to distribute cocaine, a felony charge. He failed to appear at a court appearance in April.

Gregoriev had reportedly planned a trip to Florida with Reardon, according to the America's Most Wanted website. Authorities are trying to determine if Gregoriev is running from law enforcement with Reardon or if she is being held against her will.

AMW describes Reardon as 6'3" in height and weighing about 220 pounds.  He has a muscular frame and is bald with at least one ear pierced and blue eyes. Gregoriev is 5'11", 145 pounds with brown eyes and hair.

Anyone with information on either person is asked to contact America's Most Wanted at (800) CrimeTV (274-6388) or the Charleston Police Department at (843) 577-7434. You can also call CrimeStoppers at (843) 554-1111.
