Investigators are trying to find a South Carolina sheriff's deputy gun missing from his patrol car.

Anderson County Sheriff Chad McBride told local media the backup revolver was missing from a deputy's car after a windshield repaired.

A sheriff's report said the windshield was broken at a T.L. Hanna High School baseball game last month. The deputy said he was with the vehicle and no one had access to it then.

He took the car to the sheriff's in-house repair shop, where some jail inmates work. McBride said the five inmates passed polygraph tests.

He said a glass repair business also had access to the vehicle and he doesn't think the gun was taken there, either.

The officer learned the gun was missing when he picked it up May 3.
