Search and recovery teams are continuing to look for a missing boater who fell overboard in northern Beaufort County Wednesday morning.

Authorities say 52-year-old Carl Mulligan was last seen traveling along Wimbee Creek at about 10:30 a.m. Sept. 11 when the boat made a quick, hard turn and threw him into the water.

A second person who was with Mulligan made it safely to shore to call for help.

Several agencies assisted in the recovery efforts Wednesday including the Department of Natural Resources and the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.
