Janis Quintero Natos and Jamell Reggie Carter have been missing since Dec. 12. Their bodies were found on Friday at Rivers Bridge State Park.

The bodies discovered at Rivers Bridge State Park on Friday morning have been identified as the couple reported missing three weeks ago.

The bodies have been positively identified as Janis Quintero Natos, 35, and Jamell Reggie Carter, 38, both of Thomas Drive, Bamberg, according to Bamberg County Coroner Billy Duncan.

The cause of their deaths has not yet been determined because of decomposition, Duncan said. He expects to have additional information about their deaths sometime next week.

Natos and Carter left their home on Dec. 12 and haven’t been seen since. Natos was in her pajamas, leaving her purse behind. Carter left home without his medications.

S.C. Law Enforcement Division spokesman Thom Berry said agents were called to the state park on Friday because the agency is investigating the disappearance of Natos and Carter.

“Our work into the matters continues. As the work is underway, it would be inappropriate to discuss any specific details,” Berry said Saturday.

Anyone with information on their deaths is asked to contact the Bamberg County Sheriff's Office at 803-245-3000 or 803-245-3018.
