Body Found Where SC Boater Disappeared

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office has confirmed that they have recovered the body of a man about 25 yards away from the location where a St. Helena Island fisherman went missing.

Fifty-two year old Jimmy Aiken hasn't been seen since Thursday afternoon. His boat was found floating down the Warsaw Creek off Warsaw Island near St. Helena Island. Emergency workers have been searching for him ever since.

The Beaufort County Coroner's Office is expected to identify the body tomorrow. The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office, the South Carolina DNR and the South Carolina Marine Patrol Rescue Squad all took part in the recovery effort.
