CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -
??Coast Guard officials say the search for a possible missing person on the Ashley River has been called off.
Crews were called out to the City Marina off Lockwood Boulevard after a security guard reported hearing a male voice cry for help around 2:45 a.m. After hours of searching the waters did not produce any leads, authorities say the search has been suspended pending new developments.
According to a release from Coast Guard Charleston, an Urgent Marine Information Broadcast was issued and a Station Charleston rescue crew was launched early Tuesday morning. The search zone was 10 miles long by one mile wide on the Ashley River.
A Coast Guard helicopter arrived on the scene at 3:30 a.m. and made several passes over the search zone, officials say. The Coast Guard also had a boat in the water, and the City of Charleston and Charleston County Rescue, the Charleston County Sheriff's Office and the Charleston Fire Department were also on the scene.
Officials say no reports of a missing person have been made in the area.
Coast Guard officials described it as an "all hands on deck" search.
