My wife was granted temporary custody in South Carolina in 2004. The children have been with me in Missouri for 9 months now. She has not seen them during this time and contact via phone has been sporadic. Can I file for temporary custody in Missouri?

If the children have been with you for over six months it is possible for you to have a custody hearing in Missouri. You would need to get all of your documents together and seek the advice of a local attorney.
