Search for Missing Boater Goes On

The search continues for a missing boater in the Low Country. Two nights ago, the Beaufort Rescue Squadron found Eric Bradley's boat capsized in Chowan Creek, just off the Beaufort River near Saint Helena.

Today, crews with the Department of Natural Resources along with Marine Angel One helicopters have been searching the waterways, looking for Bradley.

At this point, they are say it's now a recovery effort. "Our search efforts have switched from rescue to recovery," said Cpl. Rusty Fowler with the DNR. "And we're in Chowan Creek and Port Royal Sound looking for the body of a possible drowned victim."

DNR and other crews will resume the recovery mission in the morning along with Bradley's family and friends.
