CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - The Coast Guard and state and local
emergency workers are searching for three people in a fishing boat
reported overdue off the South Carolina coast.
The Coast Guard says family members said the three left from
South Island Ferry Landing near Georgetown on Thursday morning and
were expected back before sunset.
A 25-foot Coast Guard rescue boat and a Coast Guard helicopter
were searching the waters near the coast Friday, assisted by
officers from the state Department of Natural Resources and
Georgetown County Sheriff's Department.
