I was praying she made it back home alive!

Sanaa Amenhotep, the 15-year-old daughter of an anti-violence activist from Newark, NJ, has been found murdered here in South Carolina.

The body of Sanaa Amenhotep — the daughter of Brick City Peace Collective member Sharif Malik Amenhotep — was found Thursday after a three-week search, officials announced.

“My first heir Sanaa Mahari Amenhotep I can’t believe she gone from us,” her father wrote on Facebook alongside a series of family images.

“You shattered the hearts of my entire family the pain I will never be the same,” wrote Amenhotep.

“I’m sorry Princess I didn’t protect u,” he added. “I promise u will never ever leave my heart or mind … I would lay down my life for u … I love u so much.”

Sharif Amenhotep — whose group aims to “reduce violence and strengthen relationships between law enforcement” in Newark — had traveled to South Carolina to help in the search for his daughter and put up a $10,000 reward in the case.
