The Georgia Department of Natural Resources says it has contacted the owner of this boat found abandoned in the marsh in the Jericho River near the Bryan/Liberty County line on Friday.

This story is getting a lot of attention and "shares" on the WTOC Facebook page. They say the owner of the 28-foot cabin cruiser "Mojito" now lives in Florida and is making plans to remove the vessel from the marsh.

They say Tropical Storm Hermine may be the reason it got stuck.

Criminal and civil actions are pending if the vessel is not removed from the marsh.
