The alleged child abuse happened on Loblolly Lane in Horry County back in December of 2014.

Hardwick was arrested for the crime, but never showed up for court. She's wanted for failure to appear for child abuse. Her last known address is on Holly Hock Road in Galivants Ferry.
The armed robbery incident took place on Rose Moss Drive in the Conway Section of Horry County in August of 2015.

The victim said no and told them to leave, according to the report. Later, the two came back and Bethea allegedly held a shotgun at the victim and stated "get on the ground". Bethea's last known address is on Pine Ridge Circle in Conway.
