Kala Brown, who had been missing since August, was found on Thursday, chained up "like a dog" in a metal container in rural South California, officials said.

The 30-year-old woman was discovered by police as they were out for work in rural South Calfornia, preparing to serve a search warrant.

They heard a banging noise coming from a long shipping container, knocked on the side. The deputies unlocked the doors of the container and found the woman "chained like a dog".

Todd Kohlhepp, who owned the property and is a registered sex offender, was arrested, according to reports.

Brown told police that she had been in the container for two months. Her boyfriend, Charles Craver, who has also been missing since August, remains unaccounted for.

"It's just a miracle by God that we found her alive," said Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright, reports CNN.
