Third day of search fails to find 3 missing boaters

GEORGETOWN, SC (AP) - The Coast Guard searched for a third day without success for three boaters who didn't return from a fishing trip off the South Carolina coast.

Coast Guard Lt. Cmdr. Ryan Rhodes says a C-130 aircraft and an 87-foot boat continued the search for the men Sunday, but found nothing. He says the search will continue Monday.

Authorities say 67-year-old Jim Sanders, 44-year-old Steve Sanders and 34-year-old Andy Murray left Thursday in a 23-foot boat from a landing near Georgetown. They were supposed to be back by sunset, but haven't been seen since.
