Boyfriend Now Wanted for Kidnapping in Mysterious Disappearance of Aiken County Woman


The boyfriend of missing mother Krystal Anderson is now being sought for kidnapping in her case.

Tony Lee Berry, 49, is suspected of kidnapping her in August. Anderson’s family reported her missing on Aug. 23. She is a mother of four.

“Since the start of this investigation, it was believed that Krystal was in the company of Tony Lee Berry at her home on Seivern Road in Wagener,” sheriff’s Capt. Eric Abdullah said in a press release. “We ask that if anyone has any information on the whereabouts of Berry or Krystal Anderson, we encourage them to contact the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office at (803) 648-6811. You can provide information anonymously through Midlands Crime Stoppers. Your tip could earn you a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of the person(s) responsible for any crime.”

A sheriff’s report says her family had not heard from her since Aug. 20 and were worried about her. Her mother, Wanda Sumter, told authorities that she was concerned due to a past history of violence between her daughter and Berry. When the mother talked to Berry, he reportedly told her he didn’t want to report her missing since she “often does this,” a report says.

Anderson is approximately 4’11” tall, 106 pounds, with black hair and hazel eyes.
