A 30-year-old woman who had been missing from her home since August has been found by police.

Kala Brown - from the US state of South Carolina - was found by police inside a 15-foot by 30-foot padlocked metal container.

Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright said that she had a chain around her neck when she was discovered.

Investigating police heard her banging from inside the container after computer and mobile phone records led them to the site.

The owner of the container, Todd Kohlhepp, is a registered sex offender and has been arrested in connection.

Ms Brown told police she had been fed regularly while she was kept in the container for at least two months.

Charlie Carver - Kala's boyfriend - disappeared at the same time as his partner.

He has still not been found.
