Charleston County Coroner: Body on Folly Beach was missing boater

FOLLY BEACH, SC (WCSC) - The Charleston County Coroner Thursday identified the body that washed up on Folly Beach Feb. 28 as that of Rashid Mir, a boater that had disappeared from the marina more than a month prior.

The coroner's office said it was still waiting on reports to return from the lab to determine the cause of death in the case.

The body was found near the Sunset Cay Marina. Folly Beach Police and the Charleston County Rescue Squad were on the scene for approximately one hour as they worked to retrieve the body, which is believed to be that of Rashid Mir.

Mir was reported missing in late January. He was last seen near the Sunset Cay Marina.

The body was found near Mir's sailboat.
