Police, Coast Guard search for capsized boat

Posted: Updated:

Savannah-Chatham Metro Police and other law enforcement agencies located between Tybee Island and Charleston, SC are searching under bridges for a boat that reportedly capsized with three people on board.

Coast Guard Station Tybee alerted SCMPD around 9 p.m. Thursday that it had received an automated telephone call indicating that the boat had turned over beneath a bridge. The location could not be narrowed down more closely.

The Coast Guard has received calls like this before and the call is being taken seriously.

SCMPD and other agencies are searching under all bridges while on patrol.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Coast Guard via radio or at 912.786.5440 or Emergency 911.
