CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Department’s Marine Patrol Division and Aviation Unit searched for a potentially missing boater along Odingsell River between Wassaw and Skidaway islands on Friday.

Units responded following reports of an abandoned boat around noon. Once the boat was located, officers found personal items aboard the vessel. 

After investigation, the small boat was related to a larger, 34-foot vessel that sank approximately around 4 a.m. near the Wassaw Sound. The three people on board the larger vessel were recovered safely by the U.S. Coast Guard. 

The U.S. Coast Guard and Georgia Department of Natural Resources also assisted in the search.
